Intermediate Cob Plastering Workshop 
November 15th-16th Saturday and Sunday 9 am - 4 pmAll levels of experiance will find something of value.Learn
to sculpt your own raised garden beds using clay, straw and sand. Cob
is a technique for building structures that won't rot, can't burn down
and bugs won't eat it. Earth is one of the oldest building materials on
the planet and still the most common. This workshop is led by Ray
Cirino creative sustainable artist, inventor, builder and permaculture
practitioner who has designed hybrid stoves, street furniture and
houses. Intermediate students learn the finer art of plastering (
possibly mosaic
using broken pottery if there is sufficent interest ) and how to finish
and seal our work using linseed oil and other natural protectants.
