Learn to Build With Earth: Adobe in Action Workshops

Adobe master Kurt Gardella has announced a series of both hands-on and online adobe classes for the spring. I had the great privilege of taking a hands-on adobe brick making workshop as well as an online adobe oven building workshop with Kurt last year. We did a blog post about the brick making workshop.

You can see a listing of Kurt’s online classes, which cover everything from foundations to building permits, here. He is also teaching an AIA certificate program that is both live (in New Mexico) or online that you can sign up for here.

I’m also pleased to announce that we’ll be hosting an adobe oven class with Kurt here in Los Angeles in May. Details to follow.

  1. Hi there,

    I have been following Root Simple for a while, and just wanted to let you know that I gave it and ‘Making It’ a mention on my own blog this morning — and that ‘Making it’ is acquiring a following in a small corner of the Eastern Mediterranean 🙂

    Keep up the good work!

  2. @Rachael: Thank you so much! It’s great to hear we have fans in Greece. Folks in Mediterranean climates have to band together, don’t you think? Just to figure out when to plant stuff, if nothing else! I’m glad you like the cream, and that it has been helping your family and friends. Your tweak of adding coconut oil to the olive oil whip is spot on–it makes a richer cream. I have a similar recipe in Making It under “silky cream.”
