Strawbale Wall Raising and Rendering Workshops

Wall Raising Dates:          February 15-17 and Feb 22-24

Rendering Dates:             March 1-3 and March 8-10


What’s in it for you:

The events are facilitated by none other than one of Australia’s leading strawbale building experts, Frank Thomas.

In exchange for your labour you will gain hands-on experience raising and rendering the strawbale infill walls for this project.  Frank will guide you in the construction process and the art of clay and lime rendering.  Morning, afternoon tea and light lunch will be provided by the owners Tim, Sarah and Allan.

We strongly encourage all of you who are genuinely interested in learning the strawbale building process to attend all four events with the opportunity to gain rendering experience in the last two workshops.

What you need:

You will need to wear long sleeved shirts and long pants, closed toe work boots, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, work gloves, safety goggles and water bottle.  If you suffer from asthma or hay fever it is recommended that you bring a durable dust mask for protection.
