Clayfest! 2018: Experiments in Earth Block with Becky Little and Tom Morton

Why build with concrete blocks, when you can build with earth blocks instead? For their workshop, Tom and Becky will draw inspiration from the coast (seaweed, sand, shells), from the hills (heather, bracken, stones) and from the fields (straw, grasses). Join them in building a series of sculptural structures incorporating a range of earth and natural building techniques.

You are welcome to join this workshop for one day or for more. Join in on any day.

Please refer to Earthen Building UK and Ireland’s terms and conditions for information on our cancellation policy.
