Weaving took many hours to my surprize.
Once the "basket hive" was done one layer of clay was plastered on the willow just to make a better surface for the cob material
The cob material was made of clay, sand, straw, cow dung and water. I applied cob from both in and outside.
The Skep looks like me ;) The skep is almost finished. It must dry first after which it will crack here and there. The cracks are then filled with a thin layer of clay (clay, sand and water). After that I will let the skep dry once again and then paint it from the ouside only with Linseed Oil for protection.
