Hi all,
    Before the rains really settle in here in the Pacific Northwest I wanted to 
get in one more cob workshop.  

Cob Basics and Beyond
October 10-13, Roseburg, Oregon

This will be a fun extended weekend of hands on instruction covering 
materials, mixing, wall construction, doors and windows.  Discussions 
and lectures will address: design, utilities, roofing, floors, and plasters.  
We will also feature mixing cob with a tractor as an option for larger projects. 
Wholesome meals, on-site camping, and a great time will be provided. 
Cost: $360, discounts available 
Contact Bernhard at 503-929-8583 or bernhard_masterson at 
P.O. Box 1836, Estacada, OR 97023
