Adobe in Action's "Santa Fe Adobe Basics & Wall Construction Workshop" is being offered from October 3 to 5, 2017 (Tuesday to Thursday) in conjunction with the upcoming Earth USA 2017 Earthbuilding Conference (taking place from Friday, September 29 to Monday, October 1). This hands-on workshop will teach you the basics of building walls out of adobe blocks and earthen mortar. The workshop is being held at a very special property on the south side of Santa Fe, New Mexico. On day 1 we cover the basics of material selection, soil testing and making your own adobe blocks and mortar. On day 2 we build a short adobe wall applying easy-to-learn techniques which help us keep our brickwork level and plumb. On day 3 we learn how to integrate a wood lintel and window opening into the adobe wall. This is a great opportunity to learn the basics of adobe wall construction in a relaxed setting.
