Sign up NOW Rocket Mass Heater Workshop with Erica Wisner 2 day Workshop- June 12th and 13th Time : pretty much all day includes Friday Night Fire Science Event June 11th 6 - 9 pm For more information or to Register go to: www.hopewellhub.com or Call Juliane : 503.428.6892
This workshop offers an excellent opportunity to learn the how-tos of building a rocket mass stove and how to work with cob with a Fire Master!
Partipicate in the construction of the rocket mass floor in Juliane's Yome. The stove vent pipes - surrounded with cob - will be built into the floor. The sub floor will also be all cob. In this way the cob will be heated and slowly release the heat into the yome. Juliane is also excited to utilize biochar into her cob mixture to take advantage of its cleansing and humidity regulating properties. You will get direct experience with the whole process- as you actually get your hands on and help build each stage with Erica teaching what's what. Each day will include a Q and A session so you can get her input on your project. Erica will also provide access to teaching videos as part of the package.
Proposed cost: $300.00 minimum for the two day workshop (sliding scale) ($375.00 recommended)
We don't want anyone to miss this opportunity, so please talk to us about scholarship or work and/ or materials exchange options. We are happy to accept materials and equipment usage (see list below), etc. as part of the exchange. We are just looking to cover Erica's fees.
All Covid protocols will be observed so space is limited to 10-12 students (depending on Covid "partners").
Aircrete and Cob Workshops for converting the yome into an aircrete Cottage and building cob walls are in the works as well. We are planning to build a double chamber cob oven - to utilize rocket stove technology in a cob oven. (Our vision is that the Cob oven will become a community opportunity to have pizza parties, bake our breads and cook soup, beans, grains, and roasts together on a regular basis.) More details will be available later but please let us know if you are interested.
