Natural Building Basics – Part 1 with Bryce Ehrecke

When:July 8 - 9, 2017

Contact Information
Phone:250-483-2119 Email:[javascript protected email address]

Come and get your hands dirty learning about Natural Building Basics, and working with sustainable, local building materials! This work party workshop (plan to get muddy!) will cover wall prep, mixing, and application of Light Clay with straw and wood chips, as well as Cob. This is the first of a series of 2-day workshops and will hopefully inspire you to delve deeper into the world of Natural Building. When so much of the material world is now made up of toxic building materials, we have to look for new/old ways to help improve the built environment. Light Clay and Cob are sustainable, long lasting, non-toxic, breathable, local, and completely waste free. Light Clay is a mixture of clay and straw or wood chips, which is then packed into a wall. It can be covered in many different natural finishes (see Natural Building Finishes workshops in sidebar) and works well in the renovation of existing buildings. Cob is a mixture of clay, sand, and straw, and is similar to Adobe, but instead of making bricks, you sculpt the walls. There are many Earthen homes around the world – built with ground beneath your feet – that have been standing for hundreds of years. For a more complete learning experience, register also for Natural Building Basics – Part 2 on July 15-16. Course Instructor Bryce Ehrecke comes from a line of weavers, builders, and explorers. His ancestors created textiles in Ireland, farmed in Normandie, and constructed in Germany, before coming to Canada to lead a different life. From his mother’s side he has gained creativity and ingenuity, and from his father’s side, he has gained craftsmanship and skill. He now weaves his heritage with place, and natural buildings with natural landscapes, honouring the relationship between human beings and all other beings. His education in natural building began by connecting and paying attention to the world around him, and expanded while apprenticing with Pat Hennebery of CobWorks. He has spent the past nine years working, living, learning, teaching and exploring with many different natural builders and natural structures. He now runs a Natural Building and renovation company based out of Victoria through Dreamweavers Collective. He specializes in rock work, earthen and lime plasters, roundwood, and using whatever design and materials best suit the environment and whom the structure is for.
