Award Winning Demonstrations

royal cornwall show 2016

For several years now, we have taken our demonstrations of cob mixing, cob brick/block making, clay plastering and general muddiness to various events in and around Cornwall.

We actively encourage participation from anyone who has an interest in cob and this has proven to be the catalyst of our successes.

In particular, our Royal Cornwall Show demonstrations are incredibly popular, culminating in Best Trade Stand winners Four times, most recently 2017. Our teams' effort every year is amazing and these awards are very rewarding to us all.

However, it's not all about being 'Best in Show', we pride ourselves on sharing our knowledge of cob and educating those who are not so familiar with the numerous benefits that cob and earth in construction achieve. In addition to the Royal Cornwall Show, we have demonstrated for Country Fairs, Steam Rallies and Schools.
