Natural BuildingThe main focus of the February Terra-Kulture Course will be to build a Cob Pizza Oven with Carrie Cat. We will also explore and discuss various natural building techniques and practical applications.

Carrie's BioCarrie Bio PicI first discovered natural building in 2011 whilst volunteering at bergendal permaculture community near Ladismith, where I helped to build the classroom walls out of cob. As a child I used to absolutely love shaping and moulding clay into various objects and so I was truly thrilled upon re-discovering the wonders of mud-building and the possibilities that it presented. After browsing various natural building blogs I came across many cob ovens and thought to myself what a fantastic project to try and so in August later that year I built my very first cob oven and they truly are a magical mix of all of the elements, earth, water, fire and air! Since then countless more ovens built and adventures had. In 2016 I was part of a groundbreaking project in Delft building an Early Childhood Development Center out of a variety of natural building methods including rammed earth tyre walls, cob and compressed earth bricks as well glass bottle and Eco-brick walls, decorative designs and sculptural finishes. I find working with natural building materials very 'grounding' and would recommend it to everyone, get dirty!
