|Thanks Matt & Corey|
So with the base in place, on Sunday a committed, enthusiastic and fun bunch of community members came together to learn the skill of cob building. All morning we mixed, stomped, twisted, turned, moulded and sculptured the clay and straw (adobe) into cobs.
Thankyou to Tony from Rockcote Traditional Arts for delivering and leading a fabulous and fun filled workshop......what a fabulous day and what a brilliant creation....
The first community cob oven in Evans Head!!
