What We Do!
We offer a variety of different Natural Building workshops and cover a broad spectrum of different building styles and methods. We pride ourselves in creating a nurturing and supportive learning environment for women, where we embrace our individuality, our diversity and make natural building accessible to all ages and physical abilities.
We are also open to organising building workshops at your site; creating a building and a learning experience all in one on your own land. If this is something that interests you check out
We are available to implement buildings on personal sites; our focus is on small structures, under 40sqm, and outdoor facilities such as cob ovens, benches/outdoor living space, hot tubs etc. We can either come with experienced women builders from the WNB crew or we can offer the build as a workshop and invite others to come and learn whilst building for/with you. Please contact us if you are interested to collaborate with us.
During long contract builds we also offer a training experience with The WNBC. Participants join us for a full day of building every week for he duration of the build (approximately 5 months). We are planning our next training in Spring 2023.
We are available for online, and face to face, consultations where we can design your dream building and guide you step by step to creating it.
We design buildings using a holistic Permaculture design strategy where we assess not only the needs of the client but also the needs of the site and the existing eco-system the building will become a part of. We gather extensive data about the specific site and with this we are able to design a building that works in harmony with the natural energies (sun, wind, water etc), causes as least disturbance as possible to the landscape and the existing eco-systems and is therefore energy-efficient, energy-responsive, comfortable and aesthetically beautiful.
We can be there from the site assessment and finding the perfect sub-soil to foundations, walls, roofs and plastering, we can offer supportive and constructive advice and theory to get the job done from start to finish.
We are hoping to offer a range of online course in 2023
