Cob Making

Cob Making, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

On Saturday most of our playgroup, The Tumbleweeds, gathered to help make and apply the cob. There were eleven adults and a most of the girls joined in once in a while. I gave a few demos and ran around checking batches and soon we were building up the seat of the bench and getting the urbanite covered up on the sides.
I was amazed at how fast people caught on and how much we actually accomplished. It does take a lot of work to make a cob structure, but it’s fun and pretty low stress. Between the different steps of making batches, forming cobs and applying it to the structure, you get a pretty thorough workout.
