The hobbit house: Plaster, Earthen floor and fireside
We’ll return to the sweet hobbit house in the woods in Lake country north of Berlin for this short workshop on finishing touches .
Let’s make earthen plaster to show off the sculpted walls.
We are going to lay an earthen floor – learn to dance the mud dance, get into rhythm with others and have fun getting a beautiful floor put into the cabin.
Earthen floors are
- softer than concrete
- people friendly energy
- naturally beautiful
And finally : a fireside. We are designing a solution that may be a small oven that doubles as a fireplace , a small cookstove for a teapot that has a visible, contained fire or another way to bring the element of fire safely into a small space.
Date & Time: July 18 -21, 2019 4 days
