Earth Bench Building

Come join us and get earthy in this hands-on workshop! We are building a cob bench on the Spirit Weavers land for all to use and enjoy. Cob is a natural and sustainable building material that has been used for centuries consisting of clay, sand, straw, and water. We will be mixing this material with our feet, applying with our bare hands, thus this is safe to use with all ages. In this workshop we will discuss the history of cob, recipes, how to build with the earth, finshing plasters, and waterproofing. You will walk away with the experience of building a communal structure from start to finish, handouts to take home for further study, and resources to continue your building experience.
