Working with our sub partner Strawbale Building UK (SBUK) Barbara Jones will be delivering talks, workshops and hands-on experiences about UP Straw as part of the project’s work on Training of Construction Sector Professionals and Undergraduates.

SBUK are proud to present the inaugural ‘Big Straw Bale Gathering’ – a gathering to discuss and learn straw bale construction and share the latest and best thinking within the industry.

Held at Down To Earth’s beautiful strawbale roundhouse in South Wales. The weekend will feature talks, discussions and hands-on workshops, for all levels, led by the UK’s best natural builders and leading associated professionals. So come down and get excited about building with straw, learn some new techniques or get stuck into the geeky technical stuff.
