SOLD OUT – Small Earthbag Shed Build – Easter Long Weekend

April 19 - April 21

Booked Out – Build with Earthbags: Small Earthbag Shed Build

**** UPDATED **** Now fully booked. ******
Please message us if you are interested in a future workshop.
____________________________________________
For those of you who missed out on the “bagging experience” of the Earthbag dome but still want to learn to build with earthbags, here is an opportunity.This is a minimum of a 2 day workshop.
* You will see what I mean below.

It is Friday and Saturday of the “long weekend” over Easter.

What will be happening.
– A small concrete pad will already be put in place ready for the build.
– a Small square shed will be built with earthbags.
– Given the small size of the shed, the idea is that with a minimum of 5 – 6 people involved this will be built within 2 days.
– People who wish to attend on the Sunday, Monday also are welcome to then do the cobb render and possibly the lime render (depending how well it dries – weather pending) so that they can see a small build from start to finish.

What do you learn?
– It is not just about laying bags.
– You learn what you need to do for a damp course for bags and how the consistency of the materials varies from the rest of the bags.
– You learn how to “interlink” the bags in a way that is structurally sound.
– You see the difference between the dome / circular build vs the straight walls and the pros / cons of each.
– You discover how to compact the bags and why people call earthbags “supported rammed earth” or “rammed earth in a bag”.
– You are shown a number of different ways of doing and laying the bags so that you can work within your physical abilities.

What does it cost?
– We ask you to bring and share a plate to contribute towards lunch each day
– There is no financial cost.
– The cost is an exchange of time and knowledge. We teach you, you help us.
– All who attend will also be able to take a tour of the multi-dome earthbag home, see an existing square earthbag bathroom and pizza oven on site.

Accommodation
– We are not an accommodation provider.
– We live in temporary accommodation on site and if you would like to camp on site, please contact us directly as we can only provide this option to a limited number of people.
– We are happy to recommend local accommodation providers in Kendenup and Mt Barker to those who enquire.
