Earthship Australia ‘mini-ship’ workshop coming up on December 7th – 13th 2013
Hello everyone! We are very excited to announce another workshop
opportunity coming up in Victoria this summer.
This workshop will teach you practical skills and the earthship principles:
building with natural and recycled materials, thermal/solar heating and
cooling, water harvesting, sewage treatment, food production. Detailed talks
and hands on education for the start to finish process will be facilitated by
Earthship Biotecture graduates.
This will be an earthship inspired dome studio, incorporating few of the
earthship principles. You will participate in:
– tyre ramming
– building can walls
– creating an earth berm
– constructing a fero-cement dome vaulted roof
– bottle wall and natural plastering
There’ll be some hard work involved, but it’ll be mighty good fun, and the end
product promises to be something special, the first of its kind constructed in Victoria and Australia.
This studio would suit anyone considering building a small studio or extra room on their rural or semi rural property and its small enough to be an affordable first build
