Cob oven workshop Oct. 6 at Meanwhile, Back in SaludaPublished 6:05pm Friday, September 21, 2012
Meanwhile, Back in Saluda invites the community to help complete its new cob oven on Saturday, Oct. 6 from noon to 5 p.m.
You’ll begin the day with a picnic lunch while the instructor presents a slide show of cob ovens locally and around the world.
Then you’ll get muddy while working hands-on with freshly made cob, and you’ll finish the day with mud pie (the sweet edible kind).
Participants will learn how to:
• Make cob, including testing the clay from your own site
• Sculpt with cob
• Learn how to make cob bricks and test for strength
• Build the cooking floor and insulation layers for the oven
• Learn to turn local soil and sand into building blocks for projects
The instructor will be Josh Carter, artist and potter from Brevard, N.C.
The event is suitable for ages: 14 and up.
