Have you ever wanted to learn how to build with natural materials like straw bale, cob, light straw clay, and earthen plasters? This summer White Oak Farm is going to host a comprehensive five week program dedicated to natural building. The course is going to be run by Taylor Starr, James Haim, and Tyler Walter who will teach the ins and outs of straw bale, cob, lightstraw clay, and cordwood construction. Students will see a structure through from pole framing to completion, in the process working with clay plasters and paints. Through lectures and plenty of hands-on field work, students will gain an intimate knowledge of natural building while being a part of the White Oak Community here on our beautiful Southern Oregon property.
