here it is at last, a marriage between the Mud Girls and a house that needs to get plastered....
Come Explore the Ancient Art of Earth Plaster!

Experience the elegant simplicity of this truly sustainable building technique in a six-day  workshop facilitated by members of the Mudgirls Natural Building Collective, June 6th-11th (2011).  Over the course of the workshop you will learn, through instruction and hands-on experience, about the materials, proportions, mixing and application of earth plaster to straw-bale walls, inside and out of a hand crafted post and beam home.  Camp out in a beautiful meadow at the foot of Vast Mountain (30 km outside of Lillooet), make new friends, get muddy, and learn! Free child-care provided, as well as three delicious, mostly organic vegetarian and/or vegan meals per day for a minimal cost ($35/day per person going towards paying a cook and food), and your labour in exchange for teaching.THIS IS A COED WORKSHOP.
