Saturday 1st June saw the end of our week long intensive Earth Dome course led by Small Earth's Julian Faulkner in collaboration with Iliona Khalili and Tommaso Bazzechi from New Earth UK. Students thoroughly enjoyed themselves learning a range of earth bag building techniques, completing a beautiful 2m diameter dome and best part of a larger 4m one.
When it was too wet to build outside Iliona khalili delivered talks on various technical subjects and lead the construction of a small, dry-pack brick dome that Tommaso, with student help, later turned into a pizza oven.
Throughout the course, participants enjoyed plates of delicious food, nights round a fire and great hospitality from the Thresholds Centre.
