Sorry, this class is full.
It's no secret that the tiny house craze is sweeping the nation. People, sick of bloated mcmansion living, are rebelling and purposefully living small. Some have cashed in on this trend and are ready and willing to charge exorbitant sums to those hungry for this simplification, but there is another option: using earthbags, we can build stronger tiny homes at a fraction of the cost. During this workshop, we will work on the wall of a circular earthbag house.
We are pleased to be offering this natural building workshop on April 2nd - 5th, 2020, at Grateful Meadows in West Point, VA. Participants will get hands-on experience with many aspects of earthbag building, bottle wall/light tubes, and earth plaster/cob. We will also discuss house design, site selection, roof and foundation types, and much, much more! Signing up for this workshop entitles the participant to spend as much time as they would like on the project but no refunds will be given for those who leave early.
Primitive camping is available for free on site. Morning coffee and lunch will be served daily. Grateful Meadows is an animal sanctuary so it's requested that participants only bring and prepare vegan food while on the premises. The hours of the workshop will be from 9 or 10am to 5pm on each day, with an hour-long break for lunch. Enrollment is limited to 8 people. Click the button below to sign up or use the contact page to ask any questions you might have. Shortly after you pay, the address and other details will be sent to you. We look forward to seeing you there!
