Earth Plastering and Cob Basics

Get your hands dirty and help transform a community space by learning basic earth plastering using clay and straw. This two-hour workshop will be the start to transforming a garage into an eco-friendly community work and play space. Learn correct ratios of sand-clay for plastering, how to sift clay, and how to apply over an existing structure.

About the teacher: Jacob Gnath was an intern of Deanne Bednar at the Stawbale Studio in Oxford, MI.  He has 3 months of hands on experience working with natural building. He also loves to play music and wants to teach guitar.

(The event is being put on in cooperation with and featuring Ypsilanti Everything is Free Faire.)
