Roundhouse Building Workshop – Part Three, The Walls!

Roundhouse Building Workshop – Part Three, The Walls!

Saturday 25th April – Wednesday 29th April

This workshop has been postponed.

Please get in touch if you are interested in coming and we will let you know when a new date is set.

Last summer we built a lovely roundhouse with a reciprocal turfed roof. The photo gallery at the bottom of this post shows some pictures from the two building workshops and the roofing weekend.

Now we’re ready for the next stage. Filling in the walls!

Come and join us for an enjoyable week-long walling workshop. Learn about sustainable walling techniques using a mix of local, natural or reclaimed materials . Techniques we will be using include:

Cob, Bottle Bricks, Cordwood, Dry Stone Walling and Strawbale

This workshop is part grant funded, so is available at the bargain price of £100 per week! The workshop fee includes:

* 5 days of tuition and fun
* Self service breakfast
* Two course lunch and evening meal from the kitchen of the talented Veganishmum
* On site camping
(Don’t want to camp? Very local b& b accommodation available for small additional cost.)

Arrivals ready for the workshop are from afternoon / evening of Friday 24th, departures will be on Thursday 30th April. The workshop will run on 25th – 29th April and full catering is available on those days.

Can’t make it all? We would like most people to commit to the whole week; and this is definitely the way to get the most benefit and enjoyment! However, we can accept a small number of part week bookings. Get in touch for more information.
