Intensive Straw Bale Workshop Crete

Project: The Permaculture Research Institute of Hellas (Greece)

Posted by maria baltazzi about 8 years ago

In this 10 day intensive workshop we will learn how natural, unprocessed materials such as wood, straw, clay and sand can be transformed into a beautiful, fully functional, healthy, safe, affordable and durable house, designed to offer an exceptional livi

While giving special emphasis on building with strawbales, living (green) roof construction and clay rendering, we will explore other natural building techniques and their appropriate application. Straw bale construction is an excellent building method that provides great benefits in terms of saving on financial and environmental resources both during the building process and during the building’s human use. Besides hands on practice with these materials we will also cover topics such as bioclimatic design, foundation construction, appliances installation, water management and remediation and of course, permaculture.

Course Instructors: Barbara Jones (amazonails UK) strawbale building, rendering / Toby Mclean (tall engineers UK) structural engineering /  Stamatina Palmou (ecoart GR, PRI Hellas) resource management, permaculture design / Christos Choraitis (Heatherwick studio, Sanford coop UK) bioclimatic design, living roof
The workshop will be held at Palaiocastron, a beautiful location just outside Heraclion, Crete. The building site is located 100 metres from the beach. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
