This course complements our existing range of courses for the repair, conservation and maintenance of traditional buildings and bridges a knowledge and experience gap required for the effective repair, conservation and maintenance of earth constructed buildings which unknowingly abound our landscape in Scotland. Scotland has a rich but largely forgotten heritage of earth buildings which is slowly gaining recognition through recent projects and publications. There is also a global revival for earth and natural materials in eco-construction. Becky Little (Rebearth Ltd) has over 25 years’ of experience working with both earth here and abroad and will share her knowledge across a range of disciplines, including sourcing and testing materials, mixing and making samples, building and repairing structures. By the end of this workshop course attendees will be able to recognise earth and clay built structures and will gain an understanding of earth materials science, construction methods and the conservation requirements for their effective repair.
