Learn & Practise Self-Build Cob
Cambridge / 5-day courses / running from 19 May - 6 June
Due to the popularity of our first three weeks Somewhere (artists Karen Guthrie & Nina Pope) have added a few additional places on the the last three Tomorrow, Today cob courses:
Come to Cambridge and spend a rewarding muddy week learning the ancient & sustainable technique of cob building from the UK's leading experts, and be part of an amazing public art project. Following a residency with the Cambridge Archaeological Unit on the site of the North West Cambridge Development Somewhere are creating a 'model village of the future' from the subsoil generated by the archaeological investigations. A walk-through scale model of the paths, houses & shops planned for the future of the site.
£50 per person / £25 concessions for 5 days including all tools, tuition, splendid lunches & teas. Your can book online here.
If you would like to see the project and get a taste of building with cob, we are now additionally offering one day places on Thursdays and Fridays for the next three weeks (starting 22nd/23rd May). You will join the team from that week and work alongside them building with cob and experiencing the model as it develops and changes.
£10 per person / £5 concessions for the day including all tools, tuition, lunch, tea and great cake. For more information or to book a place:
Call Cob Coordinator Kirsten on 07545 218 251 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
