June 14-15
The Straw Bale Studio
Oxford, Michigan, USA

If you want to learn how to build a Rocket Mass Heater the best way is to come build one, and now you can take one home with you when you go.

We will start with a tour of the functioning Rocket Heaters on the property and the fire science behind clean, efficient Rocket Mass Heaters including this one.

Then we will build one to heat the Straw Bale Sauna.

We will work with scrap metal and cob (sandy clay soil) so you will want to wear sturdy clothing you are comfortable getting dirty.
Vegetarian friendly mainly local food will be provided starting with lunch on Friday and ending Saturday evening with wood fired pizza in the cob oven (bring your favorite topping to share). There will also be a special opportunity for a limited number of participants to build their own fully functional CottageRocket heater.

The CottageRocket fits the fire chamber and mass inside a barrel (30 gallon or 50 gallon) and is perfect for a workshop or greenhouse (or cottage) where a three ton mass bench wouldn't be the best fit. You can get more info on what a CottageRocket is at this thread For the price of the workshop plus any parts you need (a parts and price list is provided to participants so you can scrounge) you can become a Rocket Scientist. You can also participate as a helper (not take home a rocket). for more information or to RSVP. Camping and bed space available.

Workshop price is $300 per person or $250 per person for groups or 2 or more.
$50 discount if you register before May 15
Parts cost to take home your own CottageRocket is $325
A limited number of half price work/trade positions are available

You can purchase tickets below. If the options for group purchase/build one to take home/early bird discount aren't working please contact me at or 440-221-6609.
