Cob Bench

Learn how to mix clay, sand, and straw into cob - an ancestral building material. Learn the basic principles of building a cob or straw bale house through our hands on example project - building a cob bench. The bench will also contain a more modern material - bottle bricks. Plastic bottles stuffed with plastic trash from the event as a part of the zero waste effort will become building blocks for the back of the bench and then be covered in cob.
