Straw-Clay + Earthen Plasters
10:00am to 5:00pm
Taught by Scott Howard. This course will teach you the technique of using straw and clay for an insulative and slightly structural wall infill, as well as the basics of mixing and applying earthen plasters. The straw-clay technique was recently deemed allowable for permitted structures in Portland. We will discuss all the basics of building design, the use of earthen materials in construction, and how to use straw-clay in permitted and non-permitted structures.www.earthenhand.com/workshops.html
