We’ve moved to Devon/ Dorset for our cob building workshops

We’ve only gone and done it! Yesterday we waved goodbye to our cob home in Norfolk. We have so many happy memories of hundreds of you visiting us there to learn to build with cob, sculpting pizza ovens with us and eating endless woodfired pizzas by the lake.

And now begins the new cob adventure on the Devon and Dorset border near Lyme Regis. We’re so excited to be running all our workshops from now on in such an idyllic spot by the Jurassic Coast. Come and see us in 2017!

School roundhouse nearly finished!

iceni-roundhouse-nearly-done

We love working in schools to build outdoor classrooms, Anglo Saxon Longhouses and roundhouses. Kate is just finishing the thatch today for the wonderful roundhouse she has been building with the children at Pulham Market Primary School. The children have been fantastic working with the wattle and daub, mixing up cob, helping with the timber frame and they have learnt all about thatching too.

If your school would like to book us for an outdoor workshop please get in touch at sheepie32@hotmail.com or phone 07949241815. All check out our school workshops page for more info.

Blast from the past

Six years ago the BBC’s Inside Out made this film about our cob house building courses. We’re come such a long way since then. It’s fun to look back though. Watch the short film here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E03Z8Jn2vw

 

Eco Christmas present idea – a pizza oven workshop

Fed up with giving landfill for Christmas?! Why not give an experience instead – a muddy, yummy, eco day out with us on our pizza oven workshops in 2017?

Our pizza oven workshop vouchers make an ideal Christmas gift for anyone who loves eating pizza or enjoys trying their hand a new skill.

The one day course involves tuition from cob building expert Kate Edwards who will show you how easy it is to build a pizza oven for your garden using cob. It’s the original way of doing it and it happens to be the most eco and economical method too! And we think cob ovens cook the best pizza too. We’ll serve you mouth watering woodfired pizza for lunch and it’ll all take place in a glorious setting by the sea in Uplyme, Lyme Regis.

To order your pizza oven workshop Christmas Gift Vouchers please email us at sheepie32@hotmail.com or give us a call on 07949 241815.

Pizza oven workshops in Devon and Dorset in 2017

So we had our last ever pizza oven building and pizza eating workshop at our cob home in Norfolk last weekend. We’re just starting to pack up the cob house now and getting ready for our exciting move down to the home of cob in East Devon!

All our pizza oven workshops and cob house and garden studio building courses will now take place in the beautiful Lyme Regis.

It was a great day last weekend with a fantastic bunch of cobbers from around the country – so we ended the season on a high note. Thank you for your kind words you sent Richard on your return to London..

“Seriously, thanks for a great day with the perfect mix of education, activity and good company.
The arguments for the cob oven became increasingly convincing but the deal was sealed with the delicious pizza at lunch. The proof of the pudding, as they say….”
