Earth Building Basics

Earth Building Basics

Come and explore the basics of earth building. What you learn could help you build a pizza oven, transform the inside of an old shed, or build your own……….?

We will start the morning with a walk around some earth projects (Bathroom, pizza oven, earth retro-fit, earthen plasters) then we will head to the ‘brick yard’ for some making.  We will make some earth bricks to get the feel for the earth mix and then have a go at making cob and some basic earth plasters.

Please bring a sunhat, old clothes and some lunch to share.

If you would like to take some plaster home bring a container with a lid.
