An earthen floor can be beautiful, durable and a joy to walk on! It is also the most sustainable flooring option available.
During the workshop, participants will learn how to create an earthen floor mix from site soils and natural ingredients. We’ll look at how to test soils for suitability in floors, and how to amend soils to make a good mix for floors. We’ll lay and trowel out a full floor, and learn techniques for getting the desired surface characteristics.
Find out about how to prepare a variety of floor substrates for an earthen floor and natural finishing options for earthen floors. Maintenance and repair issues will also be addressed.
Mixing and laying an earthen floor is a skill that is quite easy to learn, and you’ll leave this workshop eager to try out an earthen floor of your own!
