Going back to our roots

Bamboo and soil offer endless opportunities- not just the prospect of building a humble hut. This 4.5-day workshop in Auroville will teach you various methods of building a sustainable home (adobe, cob, 'waddle & daub') with traditional and modern techniques. Enjoy a hands-on experience of building a home with materials that will keep you warm in winters and cool in summers.

What to expect in the Auroville workshop:

  • Learn using bamboo as a construction material. Right from harvesting the sturdy grass to using it for construction, you get hands-on experience of all processes.
  • Identify various types of soil, their strengths as a construction material and how to mould them to plaster walls.
  • Get hands-on experience in constructing with traditional and modern techniques of sustainable architecture.
  • Understanding how traditional material can be moulded into the modern needs of architecture.
