Cob Sculpture for beginners


Learn the basics of sculpting a relief onto a pre-existing earth wall with cob, a traditional building material made from a mix of clay, sand and straw (sometimes animal hair and other fibres).

You will also learn how to integrate other natural and recycled materials into a relief cob wall, make your own basic sculpting tools, as well as the process of preparing the materials and mixing the cob.
