Lao Home School

What? – Free Natural Earth Build Workshop 

We are building two classrooms for a new Home School! 

We will be weaving bamboo screens, making earth blocks, doing cow poo and clay plasters, putting up a steel frame and thatch roof. Plus we will be upcycling recycled plastic bottles and tyres. To make a playground and two classrooms. We also plan to convert the WC block roof into a Green Roof. Many hands make light work!
