Herbie Marsden is back with his Natural Home Building Workshop! Experience a passive solar mud house in this hands-on workshop and learn the basics to build your own structure. Herbie will show you clay bearing earthen building techniques with clay-rich soil in two fast hours of fun. Tour the home he and his wife have been working on for over 35 years. Come prepared to get down with earth and water...you will get dirty in this workshop!
Herbie Marsden has built and helped build several homes using earthen, local, unprocessed, used, and recycled materials. He has years of experience remodeling and repairing residential and commercial buildings and problem solving electricity and electronics. Herbie is presently retired: studying painting and sculpture at WNMU, reading, messing with electronics, computers and 3-D printing, and traveling.
Only 10 spots are available for this workshop - reserve yours now!
