Learn to build using what mother nature provides, within my own Rammed Earth Eco-Shed on The Norfolk Broads!
These fun and friendly courses will be held over two days and will cover all the essential areas of building with rammed earth.
We will cover many topics together and you will take away the confidence to go forward and complete a project of your own, to include:
"Just wanted to thank you again for everything. Rammed earth building is a very ancient tradition and your course revives the tradition using modern techniques. You blend theory with practical application in a very clear and simple way."
Said - Working on projects in Oman
"This course is suitable for people with or without a technical background. The rammed earth theory combined with the hands-on approach enables anyone to complete the course with the confidence to start a rammed earth project. Michael's enthusiasm is infectious, he sees only challenges; not problems. This course will motivate you to get stuck in and give it a go. And to top it all, the food is outstanding. If you do one course this year, make it this one!"
