Cob Building Workshop with Kevin McCabe - Saturday 25 July or Saturday 8 August 2020

25th July 2020 09:30

Join us for a full one day’s Cob Building Workshop led by Kevin McCabe, #TheKingofCob, on Saturday 25 July 2020 at Dingle Dell.

No previous experience in cob or building is necessary  – this is an informative but enjoyable and relaxed day!

We will cover all aspects of building in new cob, including choosing the correct soil and making adjustments to what you have available as necessary, different methods of mixing including by foot and by machine, actual building up of a lift of cob as well as paring some we made earlier.

Kevin will be teaching the course himself so should be able to answer any questions you may have regarding any project of your own. The cost is £100 + VAT, (£120) which includes a delicious, homemade lunch and a short tour of Dingle Dell as seen on Grand Designs.

Places (usually!) fill quickly for our workshops so we ask you to pay in full in advance to reserve your place. We limit each workshop to just 8 places, so that you get maximum advantage of the day.

Please ‘register your interest’ below and we will be in touch with further information and details of how to make payment.

COVID-19 We are aware this is an uncertain time, but by scheduling it in the summer, we are hopeful that this event will be able to go ahead. Should Government guidelines, at the time, prevent this event from taking place, a full refund will be given.
