For the year 2020 we have separated theory and practical workshops:
Building families/builders/self-builders/DIY workshops:
target group/themes: You want to build a straw bale house yourself or thermally renovate an existing house, or at least help or plan to do so. You want to know how much it costs, where it makes sense to cooperate, what you are allowed to do yourself, how to start such a project, what a straw bale house and its construction looks like and where you can get the materials for it. Our clay building professional Toni Auer will also show you what you can do with clay and how beautiful it can be. Then sign up for one of our introductory workshops (with the possibility of a subsequent practical workshop) on straw bale construction and loam rendering:
