Cob Oven & Timber Framing Workshop
At Stonehedge Gardens, 51 Dairy Rd. Tamaqua, PA 18252
From: Lehigh Valley Natural Builders Guild
Join us for a weekend of Cob Oven Building, Timber Framing, music & storytelling at Stonehedge.
Learn how to build a cob pizza oven (made out of clay, sand & straw) and build a timber frame structure using hand tools and time-honored techniques. We’ve already built the base for the oven. We will finish construction of the oven and will construct a timber frame pavilion over the oven during the course of this 2-day workshop. The workshop will run on Saturday, 8/12 from 11am-5pm and on Sunday, 8/13 from 10am-4pm. The cob building and timber framing workshops will be happening simultaneously, you can float between the workshops or just focus on one. Come for one day or for the entire weekend. Limited camping spaces are available for an overnight stay.
After the workshop ends on Saturday, we will take a break from 5-7pm, get cleaned up, have some dinner (bring your own food, a grill will be available for sharing) and then at 7:30pm we will have an open mike night in the Stonehedge Summer House. The Lehigh Valley Natural Builders are not only talented builders, many of them are also talented musicians. Come share your own talents and enjoy live music & camping under the stars at Stonehedge. We will also be lighting a campfire for those that would like to sit around a fire to share music & stories. FYI, these will also be the peak days for viewing the Perseid Meteor Shower!
Saturday Workshop, 11am-5pm – $25
