Thousands of people have attended our courses since we started running them in 2007. We have participants from all over the UK and the world. We find people from all walks of life on our cob workshops: from complete building novices, to architects and surveyors, to teachers, doctors, artists and any other job you can think of. Our courses are usually attended by an equal number of both men and women and adults of any age can take part. You do NOT need any previous building experience.


We are perfectly located on the East Devon/ Dorset borders, by the sea and Jurassic Coastline, for offering fun and informative courses in 2017/ 2018. We have teamed up with the world renowned Monkton Wyld Court – centre for sustainable education, where we  deliver all our workshops.  We can promise you a course that will inspire, excite and inform you. We’ll ply you with delicious homemade food, supply you with masses of cob information and facts, and together we’ll build either a stunning cob pizza oven or cob house or studio – depending on which course you attend. Click here to see the fabulous Monkton Wyld Court who also offer camping and Bed and Breakfast options, so if you fancy staying with the rest of the cobbers on your course there is plenty of opportunity to socialise in the evenings together – gather round the fire pit and prop up the bar at their on-site organic pub.
