Kurt Gardella, who built our adobe oven, will be teaching a few online classes. More information after the jump.

Dear adobe friends,
I wanted to remind you that I am teaching 2 Adobe in Action online classes beginning next Monday, March 17th.

The History & Basics class will give you all of the skills you need to find and test soils for use in adobe construction and also take you through the process of making your own adobe bricks:
Class: History & Basics of Adobe Construction (8-Week Online Class)
Dates: March 17 to May 11, 2014
Credits: 2
Location: Online Instruction via Minigroup
Instructor: Kurt Gardella
Fee: $250

The Foundations class covers detailed design and construction techniques of foundations that work well for adobe structures and meet code in New Mexico:
Class: Foundations for Adobe Structures (8-Week Online Class)
Dates: March 17 to May 11, 2014
Credits: 2
Location: Online Instruction via Minigroup
Instructor: Kurt Gardella
Fee: $250

Both of the above classes count towards Adobe in Action’s Certificate in Adobe Construction.

Adobe in Action also has a hands-on adobe preservation class coming up at the end of March. This class is made up of a 5-day field component (March 31 to April 4, 2014 - 8am to 4pm) and a 4-week online component (April 7 to May 4, 2014). The live part of the class will be held in the Las Cruces, New Mexico area and will be taught byPat Taylor. Pat is the go-to person for adobe preservation and conservation in the USA and a lot of the techniques he covers can also be applied to (smart) new construction.

Registration for all 3 of the above classes is open right now and can be completed directly online here:

Best regards,
Kurt Gardella
