Learn to Build with Adobe


Kurt Gardella made me an adobe convert and helped us build an oven in our backyard that is responsible for many delicious pizzas. I’ve taken a few classes he’s taught, both in person and online. If you want to learn adobe, Kurt’s your man. Here’s some info on upcoming classes he’s teaching:

  1. We have 200 acres with 2 mobile homes out in far SW Texas in Presidio County. A few years ago, I took a week long workshop with Simone Swann. I am very interested in learning more about adobe construction that will lead to my holding workshops out on our land. We are 1/2 Mile from Chinati Hot Springs.
    I do not need college credits, however. Could I take the online classes and audit? Also are there any senior discounts for audited classes?
    Thanks so much!
