It is important to have done a Natural Building introduction or foundation workshop beforehand. Applicants must already be familiar with the techniques of building with mud, stone, timber, lime...and about recognising soil types, doing soil tests and more.
If not, then please enroll for the 'Jumping into Natural Building World' workshop from 10th to 14th April 2021 first.


So you now want to get your hand in the game (literally) and start building?

Are you in love with #Cob and #Adobe but don't quite understand how it works?

Well then this is the quickest fix for all those wanting to learn how to build with Cob but don't have a month or two to spare.

Based on requests, Geeli Mitti announces a 7 day workshop on essentials of Adobe and Cob building.

The workshop will cover theory, demonstrations and hands-on practical training wherein we will together build a cob and adobe bench.

- about Plinth making options.
- how to make Adobe with 3 separate mixes - mud based, lime based, clay slip straw based for higher insulation.
- different moulds and sizes and their suitability according to the structure design.
- how to lay adobe and build walls.
- how to build strong walls with Cob.
- tools and materials needed and how to use each.
- hands-on building of a bench on two levels with inset arches and tile work.
- building utilities into your design - electricals and plumbing.
- Roofing options and hands-on live build demonstration for Living Roof, Slate Roof, Clay Tile Roof and more.
- Exploring Flooring options for a Natural Home.

There will also be documentary and movie screenings at night and/or slide shows.
