Welcome to The School of Natural Building (SNaB to our friends)

Natural Building is a huge amount of fun! It’s a great opportunity to connect with like-minded people and work in wonderful places on inspiring projects.

We are a not for profit BenCom, set up to serve the community of aspiring natural builders, particularly those who are typically under-represented in the construction industry. We offer training and educational services through both theoretical and practical courses.

We are part of a major European project called UpStraw, funded by the EU Interreg programme. As part of this project we have produced the UK’s first EPD for straw, which you can find here. Straw is a remarkable material that pushes the boundaries of sustainability within the built environment. Please feel free to browse our website, and visit Straw Works for even more resources.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
