Learn strawbale building in Bridport:
Sat 21st July and Sat 15th September


Come and learn all about straw bale construction in these taster days being run by Paul through Kingston Maurward College. Funded through the Skills for Self Reliance Project, the course will take place at the college's new Bridport Centre.

The day will include looking at examples of different designs, the practicalities involved, complementary techniques such as lime rendering, and offer the chance to have a go at straw bale building construction.

The course costs £100 but is free for residents living with the Bridport locality. It runs from 9.15 to 4.30 and it is advisable to wear old clothes and if possible bring some old gardening/work gloves if you have them. Places are limited - call 01305 215215 for more information or click here to visit the college website, or call Paul on 07767 240512.
