Cob Shed Plastering:  Week of Work Parties, 19 June | Event in Vancouver | AllEvents.in About the event Cob Shed Plastering: Week of Work Parties
Help weatherproof & decorate the Cob Garden Shed at Still Moon's Natural Dye Garden! Join us for one or more 4-hour shifts.

About this Event

>>> To complete registration, Competing the Eventbrite registration is optional, and allows you to make a donation to support this project.


Join Mud Girl Collective member Clare Kenny and the Still Moon team for a shift during this exciting 4-day long artistic and community labour extravaganza! We will work together to creatively envelop the Cob Shed with a protective layer of plaster, adding decorative patterns, and clay gargoyles and nature figurines to guard the rafters of the building structure as we work.


Shifts are 4 hours each, with lunch served either at the beginning or end of your shift. You're always welcome to stay longer and keep working, or to stop when you've reached capacity. Enjoy some vegan chili, roll up your sleeves and prepare to unleash your creativity on the walls of our community-built structure.


About the Cob Garden Shed

Last summer, with the help of natural building expert and Mud Girl Clare Kenny, our Still Moon staff, community members and dedicated volunteers came together to build a Garden Shed from Cob! We mixed clay, straw and sand to build up a beautiful shed as onsite storage for the Colour Me Local Dye Garden and the public events that we host there. (You can read more about the project here.)
