Cob Workshops 2014

Come dance in the mud with us, September 2014!

We are pleased to announce that the details are finally settled for our first natural building workshop in our new home location of Berea, Kentucky — this September, we’re hosting a Cob Building Workshop at Forest Retreats homestead!

Join us September 5-7, 2014 for a 3 day workshop to learn cob building essentials — we’ll be building a sheltered outdoor bench from the ground up, and an interior wall full of artistic touches in a newly built straw bale home. September is a stunning time of year here on the edge of the Appalachian mountains, and participants will almost certainly enjoy the beautiful setting as much as the cob stomping and sculpting.

This is a totally hands-on workshop, with all meals and lodging included. Check out the full details on our Cob Building Workshop page and register today! Hope to see you later this summer.

p.s. Details for our remaining two workshops are coming soon, as well… look out.

  • Excellent news Ziggy! I’ve made a note in my journal and really want to attend, we’ll have to see how the spring goes. I’m still putting all my extra cash towards my land principle, I really want to get that damn land note paid off ASAP.. it will make moving to my Ozarks woodstead so much easier.

    I’ve also shared this on the homesteading forum I own and operate. We have a few members in your area.

    Glad to hear everything is falling into place!

    Hahaha!!! YES!
    I remember EXACTLY what that cold mud felt like between our toes! Thanks for using that picture…it says it all! We speak fondly of our experience with everyone who will listen.
    Hope all is well with you and April. We still look back on our workshop with you guys (ya’ll) as a life changing experience, and are still looking for a place to land…getting married in June!

    I will pass on the info to Lynn about the upcoming workshop. If all the stars align, perhaps we can join you.

    Love to you both, and MUCH love from TEXAS!
