Natural construction workshop
Natural construction uses low-toxic, untreated materials and systems used appropriately for the climate, site, and intended use.
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.
DAY 1: How to build clay and straw bricks, explanations and practice. Construction of clay bricks, making the clay mixture and molding the bricks.
DAY 2: masonry of bricks and application of the first clay coating and learning to make works of art with natural materials.
DAY 3: preparation of the lime finishing plaster and applications and learning how to paint with lime.
Suwan and Manu will be your guides and trainers for this immersion course.
