Clayfest! 2018: Mudwall Repair with Colin Ritchie and Féile Butler

Mudwall (or cob as it also known) is a surprisingly durable material. And even when it does fail, it is almost always repairable, often with the original material. There are hundreds (and possibly even thousands) of traditional earth-built homes hidden all over Ireland. Learn about some of the most common causes of mudwall failure and how to fix them under the guidance of Mud and Wood’s Colin and Féile.

This workshop will build on the previous day’s activities. You are welcome to join this workshop for one day or for more. Join in on any day. Please note that there will only be a very brief recap on the techniques taught on previous days.

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

This is an Engineers Ireland and RIAI Approved CPD Event. 6.5 CPD hours per day.
