“Tibá is excited to announce that a new workshop will be held here in May – Earthbag building.
We have been experimenting with the Brazilian equivalent ‘Hiperadobe’ here at Tibá for many years now, using this technique for buildings and also retaining walls and landscaping. Now for the first time we are holding an introductory course in this great building system. Our master earth builder Marcelo has constructed lots of houses in various forms from this ‘flexible form rammed earth’ with great results and now he will be sharing his knowledge over this informative weekend along with Peter van Lengen. Come and learn for yourself why this is such a simple and useful technique that can have truly beautiful results!”
