We just found this diary entries from 2012. Looks like it was a great year for our cob building then – an award from CPRE, working with a school and welcoming a whole family from Saudi Arabia and running them their own bespoke cob house budding course. 2020 looks set to be busy already with courses filling up fast, and projects on the Isles of Scilly and even hopefully working with the homeless to build a cob cathedral! Watch this space…
Anyway here are some old diary entries we found today:
- The Campaign To Protect Rural England Awards 2012 awarded us 2 awards for our cob house White Cottage. We were really honoured in particular to receive the inaugural Askham Award in memory of Roger Askham. We enjoyed an exciting awards night with Kate taking to the stage twice. It’s really encouraging earth building is being recognised in this way.
- In 2012 we were excited to welcome participants from all over the world including Saudi Arabia, Canada, Germany, USA, France and Japan! Most cobbers came from the UK though with large numbers particularly from the north of England and Scotland. In total we had the pleasure of over 500 cobbers coming to learn with us here in Norfolk in 2012.
- Cob roundhouse commission at Gaywood Primary School – we just had a fantastic week’s cobbing with the Year 3 children and we’re really looking forward to returning in the Spring to build a cob roundhouse with the children.
