About the event
In this super fun, family-friendly 1-day event we will be learning all of the basic concepts for creating a medium called COB ~ a mix of clay, sand and straw, to sculpt small structures with! Together we will harvest materials right here on property and learn the COB recipe for sculpting. We will be going over everything from foundation to decoration, so be prepared to do some hands-on learning! All students will participate hands-on making a batch of cob, learning to test your cob, and learning to sculpt with it.
THE PROJECT: We will be sculpting a bird bath using our hands. You will gain all the knowledge and confidence to go home and make a garden sculpture of your own! This one-day workshop is a day trip for many, although people coming from out of town are very welcome to add on a night or two of camping under the gorgeous skies here at Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm. Our sweet little camping area has spectacular views of sunrises and moonrises, and some of the darkest skies to be found for great star gazing and YES! We see shooting stars ALL THE TIME! Lunch and snacks will be included.
Cost for the one-day workshop is $95 and includes organic lunches from our gardens. Camping can be added on if you wish to come early or stay over. Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm is located in Middletown, Lake County, CA. Some "glamping" sites and farmhouse rooms are available for an additional fee. We are deliciously close to Harbin Hot Springs, and may book a group appointment for Monday August 22nd, depending on interest.
