Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Finsbury Park is home to London's leading earth building CIC - Cob in the Community.

2018 brings a whole host of clay, creative and community focussed activities that, Cob in the Community would like to see happening over the next 3 years from our brand new base together with Edible Landscapes in the heart of Finsbury Park, N4:


:) Portable cob oven build - for communities / voluntary groups

:) Cob oven - train the trainer / CIC Mud Mason apprentice

:) Low impact building, cob and #permaculture

:) Politics of mud and mindfulness

:) Clay renders workshop

:) Medieval mud beehives (skeps)

:) Plastic bottles and earth construction

:) Live build  (outdoor classroom)

:) How to repair, improve and get more out of your cob / clay oven

:) Cob and enterprise - working to feed and provide employment for hard to reach vulnerable people and marginalised communities

We want to hear from

  1. a) Groups wanting clay based structures such as ovens or buildings
  2. b) Skill swap with individuals wanting to learn about cob in exchange for admin, marketing, fundraising or project management
  3. c) Partnerships with sympathetic, visionary, creative groups to link and strategically make the world a better place 
  4. d)  Individuals wanting to train as a Mud Mason 

We are a not for profit community interest company with over ten year experience, registered office in Haringey and our new outdoor classroom straddles Hackney and Islington.

Examples of projects in Archway and Crouch End
