Natural Building: Focus on Strawbale (weekend workshops)    Sat May 5 to Mon May 7, 2018, London, ON

May 5 - 7 (optional 8th)

Natural Building helps us to shift from an industrial, and often toxic building process to one that is affordable, empowering, community-building and life-affirming. Join us as we place straw bales into the double stud frame of the bunkie. We will learn about proper stacking, working around windows and doors, filling gaps for consistent insulation, bale stitching and preparation for plastering.

May 12-13

Natural Building helps us to shift from an industrial, and often toxic building process to one that is affordable, empowering, community-building and life-affirming. This weekend's focus will be applying a finish coat of plaster. We will create and apply a beautiful finish plaster. Different finishes and techniques will be discussed, including tinted plasters and mineral paints.
