We held several successful workshops in 2010 and these are just some of the pictures.
This is a little over half of our crew from the 1st rammed earth workshop on the Plum Walls. Starting from left to right: Mahatama, Mona, Chris, Clifton, Yamuna, Peter.
David, Paul and Gabo are placing the fabric for the footing.
Paul is tying steel, there was so much tying to do he became quite expert at it.
Diego “el maestro” jajaja.. Diego is an experienced rammed earth builder from Columbia, he came to learn of the different techniques we use so he can apply them to his new projects.
Lot’s of shoveling, enough for everyone!
Andreas is an architect from Columbia who now lives in Canada. He wants to bring this technique back home to do some meaningful projects.
Gabo trowels the cap. Gabo, who is also an architect. Is planning to apply his new skills in Mexico.
A sunflower impression for the forms.
A 6′ tall sunflower raised off a rammed earth wall is a beautiful thing!
