About the event

This workshop is the first 2 days of a week-long natural building experience.  These first days we will learn how to test soil for clay content, make various mixtures of clay, sand, straw and employ these mixtures in building walls, a bench, and an earthen floor.   The following workshop will cover the next stages of plastering, which is highly recommended to understand the entire building process.  Even if you can only attend these first two days, we will try to answer all your questions regarding the plastering and finishing processes.
