Cob House Building Workshop – Free

Date: Sunday March 19, 2023
Time: 1 pm to 4 pm
Place: 925 Tarra Valley Rd, Devon North VIC 3971, Australia

Ever wanted to learn the art of building a cob house? Giselle lives on a picturesque rural property in Devon North and is doing just that. Using old pallets and cob, she, family, and friends are making a little structure and are happy to show everyone how it’s done.
In this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Mix cob
  • Pack straw
  • Put cob into pallets
  • Rendering cob with lime mix
  • How to test your own soil for cob suitability
  • many other cob related skills, basically a cob fest with potentially a cob loaf workshop or a corn cob cooking demo.

You’re welcome just to watch, but getting your hands dirty and cobby is the best way to learn. You’ll need to bring the following:

  • Sun hat and water bottle
  • Sturdy, closed shoes
  • Gloves (optional)

Giselle’s place is 2kms up the dirt track from the horse letterbox. Parking at the house.
