Our second strawbale workshop was a bit cooler with a nice breeze.
Where we left off from Strawbale Workshop 1 – footings complete and spikes ready to receive straw bales.
‘Strawbale Selene’ explains the next tasks to be done to those gathered around (most of whom you can’t see in this picture!).
Plastic was placed over the footings and secured around the posts to act as a water-proof membrane.
Straw bales needed to be shaped to a gentle curve by carefully aimed karate kicks or similar techniques.
The straw bales were then carefully lowered onto the spikes to align with the footings.
A partly rendered seat and some deep discussion.
And voila, after another good days work, one of our rendered strawbale seat.
