What is a natural construction
Natural construction uses low-toxic, untreated materials and systems, used appropriately for the climate, site and intended use. It primarily incorporates natural materials rather than commercial ones, with an emphasis on obtaining these natural materials from as local a source as possible, ideally from the construction site itself.
What could be better than getting your hands dirty and learning life-size to better assimilate all the techniques and stages of natural construction. Whether it is ponds, decorative walls for the garden or bungalows, you will have the opportunity to work on concrete projects during your internship.
The first 2 days are intended to understand why we build with the earth and to deepen the reasons to understand them.
Compare other techniques such as bamboo, conventional construction versus natural construction.
Practical work :
- How to build mud and straw bricks, explanations and practice
- Building walls with earth bricks
- How to plaster and make works of art with natural materials.
- Learn how to make and apply natural paint.
- The fundamentals of natural straw bale construction and application.
- Bonus (technique developed by the trainer)
Putting into practice what you have learned with the construction of a traditional Japanese Kamado. The name kamado is the Japanese word for “cook” or “cook”. It means a “place for the cauldron”. The Kamado can have one or more fireplaces. One for heating the rice and one for the soup in general.
