Create with Earthen Cob

Create with Earthen Cob - Community Practice & Information Sharing

  • McMinnville, OR

Service Description

Join us in learning how to create sustainable, non-toxic, inexpensive structures with cob. Building with cob is a sheer delight -engaging with the earth- sculpting, mixing, squishing, and sifting to make unique artistic forms. Mixing the living materials with our hands and feet is incredibly satisfying. Experience the community rhythm that emerges from this ancient collaboration to build structure. It is a natural and simple neighborly action that creates a curvilinear sculpture, adorned with earthen pigments, niches, and glittering tiles. The knowledge that we can build beautiful, functional space makes us feel alive and capable. Cob Curious Work/Learn Community Days are open to all (15 & older please) We are stewarding 68 acres of ancient oaks, rolling meadows, wetlands, veggie & botanical gardens and a friendly community who are excited to begin their journey into earthen building. There are 3 separate earthen building projects happening with a variety of techniques being explored. When you choose your date, we will let you know which project/ technique we will be focusing on that weekend. McMinnville location. Donations are appreciated for time & materials.
