RMH Master Class
With Kirk Mobert, Ianto Evans (the inventor of RMH) and special guest, TBA.
LOCATION: The Cob Cottage Company, Coquille Oregon, USA
April 8th - April 30th, 2019
We're only taking 5 participants! This is going to be intense, don't miss it!
The accommodations are rustic, at Cob Cottage, Co. in a small cob village (in stages of build) in the Oregon forest, in winter. It'll be wet and cold, but there should be lots of fire along with the mud, 3 meals daily, and dry camping indoors.
This 3 week course is an in depth look at Rocket Stove technologies. From simple cookers, through to Mass Heaters; Ltype, Jtype and BatchBox rocket feeds, we will discuss them all. We will cover materials usage, including home-made high temperature mixes, created from scratch. We will build 2 full working systems, as well as inspect and repair some existing stoves in order to learn how to spot common problems and fix them.
This course features:
~ Build a wood fired hot water system. This system is unique in that total safety is built directly into the basic design. Heating water with wood fire is normally very tricky and done wrong can be very dangerous, leading to steam explosion, maiming and death. We will build a double boiler system, which can never explode.
~ Build a scientifically advanced, but materially neolithic Rocket Stove Cooker. Rocket Cook Stoves are an important tool towards independent, sustainable living and can be incorporated into regenerative systems designs. We will explore how a sophisticated and very modern stove can be made from home-made, neolithic materials. Using these basic methods, a beautiful and useful stove can be built, almost anywhere, with almost nothing.
~Inspect and repair broken or unsatisfactory stoves. One of the best ways to get your brain around how Rocket Mass Heaters work, is to break a few and then fix them again.. These are already broken, we'll find out why and repair them.
