This is the most comprehensive cob course available in North America.  In 9 intensive days, we’ll cover in depth all aspects of cob and the many techniques of building with cob including arches, details, shelving, furniture and earthen floors.  In this expanded vision of our most popular program ever, we’ll take the ground from under your feet and turn in into a versatile medium to sculpt a whole house.  You will learn construction of walls, installation of doors and windows and we will discuss roofing, foundations, siting, design, earthen and lime plasters and artistic details.  And you’ll leave confident enough to build a cob cottage of your own!  Space is limited to allow personalized hands on instruction. In the past 20 years, Cob Cottage has taught these workshops all over the world.  Our alumni now live in beautiful cob houses they have build at little cost, snug against cold and cool in summer.  Most Natural Building instructors in North America were trained by us or by our trainees.  Cob Cottage founders Ianto and Linda have lived only in cob houses since the nineteen-eighties. Please arrive on Friday between 3pm and 5pm. Departure after lunch on Sunday.
