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.
When you are full of knowledge you can relax with great local organic food, music, dancing, yoga, ‘Strawbale Ale’, children’s activities and a host of extra curricular events ranging from walks to canyoneering on the beautiful Gower peninsula!
The Big Straw Bale Gathering will collect up everyone with an interest in straw bale building in the UK. No matter what level you are engaging with straw bale construction, there will be lots to learn at the BSBG.
