May Straw Bale Workshop Day 4 –

Written by Andrew Morrison

people sitting around straw balesOur May straw bale workshop Day 4 was great. We accomplished a bunch of stuff on the site, the weather was great, and spirits were high. We had several lectures on site that allowed us to slow down and learn to a pace that we could then accelerate into the work.

Once we moved into action, we managed to shape the doors and windows, hang a bunch of welded wire mesh and J-metal, cut and shape two niches, and prepare for plaster. Shaping windows and niches proved to be a interesting task that gave us several different shapes in the end, all of which were well designed and completed. It is nice to see the artistic side of folks starting to shine.
