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.
