Bottle wall workshop at Bottom Leaf Intentional Community

Bottom Leaf will be hosting a bottle wall workshop on Saturday, June 11th at our community property one hour north of Asheville, NC. For those who are unfamiliar, bottle walls are built using glass bottles and earthen mortar. Bottle walls are beautiful and allow nice, diffuse light into a room, evoking a stained-glass effect. The hours of the workshop will be from 10am to 5pm on Saturday with an hour-long break for lunch. We will serve lunch and have an optional cookout for dinner (BYOP – bring your own protein). Enrollment is limited to 6 people. The price of the class is $25 off ($125 per person) if signed up for before May 28th. The price will increase to $150 a person on May 28th. There will be 2 other single-day workshops in the near future, one for earth plastering and one for earthen floors.

The main instructors will be Morgan Caraway and his wife, Mary Jane Keneipp, the co-builders of a well-known earthbag roundhouse, earthbag earthship and many other EB structures.”

Thanks, Morgan Caraway

  1. This sounds like a great start for someone like me who has been interested in building an earth ship or sustainable house for years! However I’m located in Southern California for right now. Do you have any suggestions on how to learn more or if you have any other events scheduled near me? Thank you.
