Plenty of our followers have tried out mud-sculpting with us at a number of festivals last summer.It is a highly absorbing and enjoyable pastime, with surprisingly sophisticated results from such basic materials.It has taken me a while, but I have finally written a detailed review of the event - Click here to read it.Review of Earth Conservation Approaches in Practice 17th December 2012 At last our timetable for our 2013 courses is available.
The new 4-Day Timber Frame Cabin Course will give you the skills to build a home office, den or shed in your garden.
All types of earth construction were also represented - cob, unfired earth brick, rammed earth, earth bags .....
and mud and stud (which was new to me - like wattle and daub but on a bigger scale).
For the first time, we will run our 1-Day Introduction to Cob Course in the Dublin region, at a venue still to be confirmed.
We hope this will encourage many of you to discover this amazing material without having to make the trek to wilds of the northwest. Due to popular demand, we will run a 1-Day Mud-Sculpting Course in March.
