3-Day Cob-Sculpting Workshop Empowering WOMEN
Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm
Middletown, CA
Share this event:

Workshop is May 17-19, 2019.
Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm is proud to host our third annual Cob Sculpting Workshop focused on Women's Empowerment!!  Join us as we celebrate our liberation together and learn how to build our own dwelling, fashioned from Cob: a mix of clay, straw and sand.  This workshop is dedicated to the memory of Emilie.

Imagine a world where women are empowered not only to dream their homes into existence, but are actually able to independently create that vision. What kind of artfully-created homes would we sculpt for ourselves?  

Instructors Brenda Quintero and Monica Wright will be teaching this course with help from angel Emilie, and the elders/ancestors in this important work.  Our central focus for the weekend will  be EMPOWERING WOMEN  to step into the fertility of their own Spirit, especially in the area of creating "Home" and developing skills in Natural Building.  Brenda has been teaching cob sculpting for seven years, and tenured assistant teachers will bring many hands and styles to the project.  We will also be joined by special guest teacher Rachel Avilla, who will be leading us in learning about lime plasters and paints.

We will be offering our Cob Sculpting Basics Course in this 3-day intensive workshop.

During this course we will be completing one room and outdoor living space in Grandmas Shoe House, a sweet little meditation space and childrens' play area shaped like a shoe!  While we will cover most of the basics for building a sculpted cob structure, our hands-on work will be centered on learning to make and apply lime plasters, in addition to learning about and installing an earthen floor.  We will be playing with lime paints as well, and potentially creating "Fresco" style artwork: permanent paintings on the exterior and interior walls of this beautiful work of art! The weekend will be filled with a women's empowerment agenda, including Yoga, Meditation, Dreaming, Ceremony, Music and lots of content on HOW to build a small sculpted cob structure.

ABOUT THE FARM: Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm was founded in 2010 and specializes in teaching earthen building concepts and producing fresh herbs, herbal tea blends and seasonal organic produce using poly-cropping, companion planting and bio-intensive farming practices. Through the permaculture lens, concepts of Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share are played out in the gardens and in the community that we serve.

Cost for the full 3-day workshop starts at $275 and includes organic lunches daily from our gardens, and onsite camping at beautiful Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm located in Middletown, Lake County, CA.  Some "glamping" sites are available for an additional fee.  We are deliciously close to Harbin Hot Springs, and may book a group appointment, depending on interest.
