Cob workshop

I live off grid in Virginia and am interested in hosting a cob workshop. Ive built a cob oven and a rocket mass heater out of cob. Included some pics for your enjoyment(mass heater needs one more heavy straw insulating layer). Im no craftsman of cob but I would like to build a wall now to extend my greenhouse and didn't know if anyone would want to do a workshop here. Ive started digging the rubble trench and will keep progressing on it as time allows. I know there are cob experts that do workshops, I just don't know where to start to see if anyone would be interested. Any input or advice is appreciated.

Hi Jeremy,   Not sure what advice to give but I have extended your request to the "workshops" and "natural building" forums. Good luck in your project!
