Adobe Brickmaking hands-on workshop – May 9, May 16

This Earth Day, get in touch with Adobe.  California schoolchildren learn about it in 4th grade when they study the Missions.  But did you know it’s part of the cutting edge of sustainable architecture and building with local materials.

On May 9 or May 16, get your hands muddy and have a lot of fun as we make Adobe Bricks to be used in building the Community Bread Oven.

This hands-on, get messy workshop is free and open to ALL AGES, and we are told by veteran adobe makers that grade-school children are REALLY GOOD AT IT!  So please bring your whole family for head-to-toes fun learning!

We will be guided by Ben Loescher, AIA of Adobe Is Not Software, an organization which educates the public about building and conserving adobe structures, and which is dedicated to reforming California building regulations and removing the ill-informed barriers to this sustainable building method.

Healthy snacks (fruit) and water will be provided.  Wear clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty (because you will!). Bring hats/sun protection.

Adobe Brickmaking hands-on Workshop
Sat May 9 or May 16 (two opportunities!)
9am to 1pm each day
FREE to all ages

Please RSVP 

Do you really dig getting dirty?  There’s also a Cob Building Workshop series offered by Adobe Is Not Software, during which we’ll be using the adobe bricks to build the Westchester Community Bread Oven.
