hi, i went today--it was fun. my wife & kids also had a great time. couldn't stay long--8 month old daughter was getting a little too much sun. it was nice to feel the cob (between my toes) at the different stages (the clay/dirt was a little rocky) i'll probably return for the plastering party. http://oakland.cityrepair.org/ampeartheatre/ tactile things i learned -testing the cob for if it's ready (2 person pull) -how much straw to add & when -sewing the new cob to old "set" cob -really making the cobs integrate on the wall to form a monolithic wall -new cobs shouldn't be able to be pulled off old "set" cob or recently added cob. k-) On Feb 9, 2005, at 2:28 PM, David Sheen wrote: Earth Sculpting & Building Party this weekend This past weekend's work parties at the Launchpad were a success... we got a fair deal of building done, and dozens of people, old and new, came out to help, and learn what cob construction is all about. Again, thanks to everyone who put in a lot of time to coordinate the work parties. We have uploaded 11 photographs from the work parties up onto the web. They can be viewed at the City Repair Oakland West website: http://oakland.cityrepair.org/ampeartheatre/party1.htm There is still a good deal of work left to do in order to complete the AmpEARTHeatre, and we need every spare set of hands that we can gather. To this end, we will be holding work parties this upcoming weekend, February 12th and 13th. Once again, we will be working from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday, and we will have lots of yummy and nutritious vegetarian food on hand for everyone. We are also planning on having local DJ's spinning sets throughout the day and into the night, after the work day is done. So bring clothes you don't mind getting dirty... and bring friends you don't mind getting dirty with!
