Galiano Island

SORRY ALL GALIANO WORKSHOPS ARE NOW FULL

Join us this summer on the beautiful Southern Gulf Island of Galiano, while we build a 900 square foot hybrid home of light clay straw and cob. You will learn all the natural building principles and get a good look at the structural bones of a natural home. You will have the opportunity to become familiar with the materials hands on learning to mix and install both light clay straw and cob. Make new friends, swim at local beaches and eat three healthy meals a day. We are offering three 5 day workshops and a whole lotta fun.

June 10th-14th, June 17th-21st and July 15th-19th

Bowen Island

SORRY ALL BOWEN ISLAND WORKSHOPS ARE NOW FULL.

We invite you to participate in an off grid experience. You will have two opportunities to come help us hand sculpt a small cob cottage on beautiful Bowen Island located just a short ferry ride from Vancouver. We will cover all natural building principles, discuss dry stack foundation, post and beam structures and different roof systems. Your hands on experience of mixing cob and installing the wall system will give you a good impression of what it takes to build your own cob cottage. Make new friends, swim in the ocean and eat three healthy meals a day.
