Get plastered (Clay only!)

Plastering Party: Clay plastering strawbale walls

When: 18th-20th May

Where: The Flowering Elbow Workshop, Golden Hill Centre, Nr Carmarthen.

The scene is set, we have some bale walls crying out for plaster, a lovely load of clay earth and other ingredients to mix some plaster with, now all we need is your enthusiastic hands and feet to help put the whole lot together!

This should be really good fun: play with mud, learn new skills and experience different, natural building materials, check out the invention studio so far, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings at the Golden Hill Centre. We'll start Friday evening and carry on through 'til Sunday, but you are most welcome to join us at any point over the weekend. There are a fair amount of accommodation options – floor space, parking space for vans, fields for camping etc. We'll get the food in, just let us know if you plan on coming, either via the contact form on the website, or by email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can plan for numbers, tell you what to bring, try and hook up lift shares etc.
