Come and join us at one of these great community gardens in the greater Newcastle area to build some new garden walls and seating whilst learning the basics of Earthbag construction and finishing plasters. We will also include a raw-earth arch in the wall construction (very useful to know), so it is a great way to build your confidence in this versatile technique whilst having a lot of fun!

  • Theory component (Earth Construction and Earthbag benefits)
  • Construct our stabilised earth stem wall (foundation).
  • Complete earthbag walls up to finished height.
  • Construct an earthbag (raw earth) arch with keystone
Day 2:
  • Theory component (Earth Plasters and Finishes)
