EARLY BIRD price available until 3/20!!

Fun-filled 3-day workshop in beautiful Lake County!  Come learn and play with us as we explore using earthen materials to create beautiful and vibrant colors on interior and exterior walls.  

THE PROJECT:  Our Pallet House is a cute little dwelling designed by a high-end New York Architecture Firm and is an award-winning emergency shelter, just under 200 sq ft total. The unit is very functional, with space for small living and kitchen space, a small bathroom and a sleeping loft! Both front and rear entrances come with some outdoor living space as well.  NOTE: not legally permitted as an occupied dwelling in Lake County. We will be putting our finishing touches and getting plenty of hands-on practice in mixing, coloring, and applying plasters, both lime and clay mixes.  We will have the opportunity for artistic impressions while we learn how to mix paints with lime and earth base, about using natural pigments, and practice making art!

Our Workshop leaders will be guiding us through the basic building concepts for temporary and permanent applications, and explain how this was put together for the farms herb-drying house. Our aim is to impart knowledge about utilizing materials from the waste stream and to promote building with natural, toxin-free materials to create a warm, cozy shelter.

Special guest teacher and local awesome plaster expert RACHEL AVILLA will be showing us how to mix and apply Interior & Exterior earthen and lime plasters. There will be a lecture on the pallet house build, as well as instruction for applying cob over pallets by resident teacher Brenda Quintero.

Cost for the full 3-day workshop is $275 and includes lunch daily and onsite camping at beautiful Golden Rocks Permaculture Farm located in Middletown, Lake County, CA.  The workshop participants will enjoy a shared community kitchen space, access to outdoor shower and bath tub, nightly camp fires and plenty of song, fellowship and story-telling.  Meals are always made with love and care, with many ingredients grown right hear on the farm! Upgrade to dorm room or camper is limited, so register early if you'd like an indoor spot!

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.  

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

ABOUT THE COURSE:
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 small 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 a women's empowerment agenda, including Yoga, Meditation, Dreaming, Ceremony, Music and lots of content on HOW to build a small sculpted cob structure.

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.
