Where exactly is the course? & What the 4-day complete cob building course covers:
Our workshops run at our own bespoke cob site in Uplyme, on the edge of Lyme Regis on the Devon/ Dorset border in the UK. The idea behind the 4-day course it that you will leave at the end and be confident and fully equipped to go away and build your own cob or earth house, garden studio or shed. We will arm you with all the theory and practical skills to make your cob building dream a reality. We believe we are the most comprehensive and inspiring cob course out there – whatever your past experience or future plans we will empower you to build your own cob home or building. The cob workshop will be mainly practical with each participant given individual attention to enable them to feel fully confident and comfortable, building and sculpting with the cob medium. Each day will contain one to two hours of theory, and there will be plenty of practical demonstrations and hands-on experience. There will be ample time to ask questions and discuss your own potential cob projects and ideas.
