Welcome to The School of Natural Building

(SNaB to our friends)

The School, which is the first of its kind in the UK, was established in August 2014 by social entrepreneurs, Barbara Jones & Eileen Sutherland. Barbara is also director of Straw Works which is a strawbale design, consultancy & contract build company.

Barbara is a strawbale building guru and author of Building with Straw Bales – the most comprehensive guide to strawbale building. Contact Barbara at barbara@schoolofnaturalbuilding.co.uk

Eileen works with Barbara on the strategic direction and infrastructure of SNaB. Contact Eileen at eileen@schoolofnaturalbuilding.co.uk

SNaB is a not for profit Bencom, which means its purpose is to be of benefit to the community. In this case, the community in question is the community of aspiring Natural Builders. If this describes you and you would like to know more about the School, take a look at our courses and get in touch with Eileen.

We are part of a major European project called UP STRAW, funded by the EU Interreg programme.  You can find out more about it here.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

Barbara & Eileen
