Straw bale building continues to be one of the key sustainable building technologies, where high environmental performance meets code-ready and accessible technology. Straw bales can create beautiful, energy-efficient homes that are light on the environment.
This two-day workshop is taught by two leading practitioners of straw bale building in Ontario, and is aimed at giving participants a practical and up-to-date introduction to building with straw bales.
Over the weekend, participants will learn about straw and how to find and select bales; different ways of using straw bales and incorporating them into different framing systems; how to properly detail a straw bale wall to be air tight and energy efficient; plaster preparation; plaster recipes for various types of plaster, and; hands-on plastering.
For anybody interested in building a straw bale home, this workshop is the ideal place to start the hands-on and theoretical learning process!
