Enjoy cob courses by the sea near Lyme Regis with the inspiring Kate Edwards.

We run 2 main types of cob building course:

Twins Alice and Hebe from Sussex learn to build a cob wall of a studio on one of our courses

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. All our workshops are held at our cob course location in beautiful Uplyme on the edge of Lyme Regis. 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. And you are spoilt for accommodation choices since we are in a prime holiday destination – camping, caravans, B&B, self catering, hotels – many in waling distance.
