Clay Plastering with Will Stanwix

Practical workshop at pioneering eco build site.

  • From 110 British pounds
  • Wolves Lane

About

Get your hands dirty in our clay plastering workshop with natural materials expert Will Stanwix at Wolves Lane. Learn how to create clay plasters from scratch using clay dug from the site and how to apply them to various substrates, including straw bales. This workshop covers both theory and practical application, so come prepared to get your hands dirty and unleash your creativity! The one/two or three day workshop, held over three weeks, will include a tour of the growing and construction site, talks from Will Stanwix and opportunities to get feedback on your own projects and questions. The workshops will be located at Wolves Lane, a good growing site that is working towards a more socially and racially just food system and building community resilience. Three new buildings are under construction on the site that will form a community hall, classrooms and barn. Designed by Material Cultures and Studio Gil they are constructed from timber and straw, with concrete free foundations. Wherever possible the construction process is being used as an opportunity for skills exchange and learning. This has included apprenticeships, training of site users and volunteers, straw bale and lime plastering training. ACCESS The workshops are being held on an active building site and may pose issues for those in wheelchairs or with reduced mobility. Reach out to us if you would like more information and photos in order to assess together whether you would be able to access the site. PRICE: Many people are under-represented in construction and architecture and we want to do all we can to help respond to this. We have tried to keep the price as low as possible. A portion of places will be subsidised 50% for people who don't have access to resources for the cost of the workshop, please email us if you would like to access a subsided place.
