Walls of Earth

Come and learn a range of natural-building techniques with us as we fill in the walls of our new timber-framed shop. This is a great introduction to earthen-wall building with tons of hand-on experience. It is perfect for beginners or people with some experience wanting to expand their skills.

You will leave with a broad understanding of the world of earthen building, giving you the confidence to start something on your own, be it a small backyard project or basic earthen walls for your house.

We will be covering a range of different techniques for earthen wall building, from adobe and straw-clay bricks, cob, and wattle-and-daub walls to stone foundations. We will also touch on earthen finishes. We will take a close look at these materials and how you might source them in your local area. A large element of this workshop will include processing and refining materials to give you an understanding of the mixes. It will be very hands-on so be ready to get muddy!
