This workshop is the first session of our 4-Part Natural Building Series.
Straw bale & Slip-straw Workshop
July 16-17, 2016
Join us for an introduction to two straw-based natural building techniques! You will learn the basics of installing and plastering straw bale walls (which have a better fire rating than conventional walls!). Additionally, we will learn to mix and install slip-straw, which is a technique that uses loose straw. The weekend will be fully hands-on, supplemented with a slideshow presentation on Saturday evening.
We will begin at 9:00am and end our days around 4:30pm each day. A wholesome, vegetarian lunch will be served each day.
