Something big is coming to PH!

Today we met with Maya (art director for CSU-Pueblo) and started plans to make our very own cob house (looks like a little nome hut). We’ll be scouting out the materials after which, all the kids in the neighborhood and any school that wants to participate, can come out and stomp clay with their feet.
