This was another workshop of new techniques.
Byron invented "wheelbarrow cob" in order to mix off the ground to reduce strain in his back.
Robert's wonky knee required a kneepad and a cobbing accessory was born!
I love these workshops because so many new ideas are born. If it wasn't for workshops, Fast Cob! itself would never have been born...
...and the first workshop for my daughter! I was thrilled that she could finally be part of a weeklong workshop and at the tender age of 9, cobbed throughout when she wasn't preparing our tasty snacks. Actually, I exaggerate since she was also the official photographer (hence the lack of photos of her):
As you can see the first window of the main house was installed, as well as the double door. Excluding my daughter, our average age was late '50s and you can see how much Fast Cob! did. We even "experimented" with slower cob and utilized the straw bales as benches to help our older bodies. And despite the rainy last day, we had a blast with talent night and ended up with limericks to remind us all of the virtues of cob.
