Earth building seminar 2012
14th and 15th of July 2012 - village Kosovo
Teacher: Varvara Valtchanova
On July 14th and 15th of 2012 we held a seminar on earthen building. The eight participants coming from different parts of Bulgaria had a strong personal or professional motivation. During the seminar were presented the properties and qualities of earth as a building material, the different building techniques used worldwide and in Bulgaria. As a practical exercise the participants mixed straw with earth (light earth) and poured it in a timber formwork. During the second day were realized different samples of earthen plasters as well as pointing of a stone wall with earthen mortar.
