What’s Here for You
Human habitation has become too narrow in its definition. Shelter should be healthy and nurturing. It should be inspired by and respectful of nature’s genius. It should be efficient both in its use of space and in its use of materials and energy. It should be affordable. It should be durable and adaptable. We work to make these sentiments real.
We are consultants, teachers, leaders, and doers. Our services are broad and adaptable and we find great joy in working with folks that believe a better future is possible. Together we can build a straw bale home, a delectable wood-fired cob oven, or bless your walls with exquisite clay plasters. Have a look around, be inspired, and get involved. We look forward to connecting with you!
Recent Feedback from a Happy Student:
I have taken three workshops with Ashley and heather. They are both very knowledgeable and kind teachers. They are very passionate about their craft and seem to hold strong ethics. For this reason I traveled to Alberta from New Brunswick because their workshops have been very valuable with real life applications.
I feel comfortable and confident enough to continue with my own projects and know they will be available should I have questions. All workshop hosts also have provided excellent meals that where organic or local. I highly recommend Dirt Craft and hope to do more workshops in the future….
