Saturday, September 23rd
INSTRUCTOR: Sara Tamler
Natural Building is a family affair! All ages are invited to learn the basics of building with earth. We’ll get our hands and feet muddy building with adobe and cob, and learning how to sculpt and finish an earthen wall to make it fun, functional and beautiful. Through hands-on work on an earthen playground, students will learn the skills needed to design and build almost anything they can dream up out of earth – their own garden wall, bench, sculpture, or playhouse!
Refreshments and a light organic, gluten-free, vegetarian lunch will be served.
TUITION: Early Bird (Registered/Paid by August 23rd) $80; After August 23rd $100; Last Minute (after September 9th): $125
We have dorm space available for $20 per bed on a first-come-first-served basis. Please reserve your dorm space here.
ABOUT SARA: Sara Tamler is a natural builder and Aprovecho alumni based in the Eugene area. She got her start as a builder working on trails throughout the country and dabbling in conventional construction, but after discovering natural building at Aprovecho in 2014, she has been focusing on honing her skills in mud. Sara now works as a builder and educator, and in the summer of 2017 will be co-leading the construction of the only natural building to be built as a part of a new urban affordable income tiny home village in Eugene. Sara also loves chainsaw carving, exploring wild places, and her geriatric dog Augie.
