Event description

Description

This three-day educational workshop will provide information on building with cob, similar to adobe, but much stronger. Topics covered will include drainage, soil selection, mixing the cob, foundations, wall application, framing for windows and doors, and more.

Houses made of cob can last hundreds of years. Many homes built in England during the 1500's are still standing and inhabited to this day. If one is looking for a tornado, earthquake, and fire resistant home, then cob is a great choice. Not only is cob an excellent sustainable choice, it is versatile as the walls are free form. Go with your own design.

Friday: Noon to 5PM.

Saturday: 9AM to 5PM.

Saturday night: Campfire visitation 7PM to 9PM.

Sunday: 9AM to 3PM

On site camping is avaliable and free of charge.

Lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday. Price $7 each day.

Bottled water. Free

Bring your lawn chairs.

Ages 11 and under attend free with an adult ticket purchase.

This is a hands-on workshop, so please bring clothing that is suitable for working with mud.

Location 142 Polk Road 185, Mena, AR 71953. We are located about five miles east of Mena, 2.5 miles off of HWY 88. Google maps should give accurate directions, however once the T in the road is reached on Polk Road 74, GPS tells you to go right onto county road 71. Don't go right. Turn left and continue on county road 74. A sign will be there to point the way. Polk Road 185 will then be 1/4 mile on the right.
