I am happy to announce a new workshop date for the 2008 season. I will be holding a seven day intensive straw bale workshop September 1 – September 7, 2008 at the beautiful Berry Hill Gardens country Bed and Breakfast. Here’s a little description of the property from their website (www.BerryHillGardens.com).
Off the beaten path on a secluded lane, conveniently centered between Bainbridge, Afton and Oxford, our country bed and breakfasts are located in the heart of Central New York. The breathtaking Leatherstocking Region is an area bursting with museums, sporting facilities, artisans and fascinating history.
The hosts offer two vastly different B&B experiences on their 300 acres of gardens, lakes, ponds, woods and meadows. Berry Hill Gardens Bed and Breakfast Inn is situated on a hilltop overlooking miles of rural beauty; the Buckthorn Lodge is nestled in a sunny glen deep in the woods. Enjoy delicious breakfasts in a friendly, healthy informal atmosphere. Comfortable antiques, fireplaces and all-natural luxury linens are throughout.
This workshop will take the participants step by step through the process of building a straw bale cottage roughly 400 square feet in size. I will cover all of the information you need to build your own cottage and ultimately: your own house! The workshop, like all of my workshops, is limited to 20 participants so sign up soon to reserve your space. The area is beautiful, the workshop will be educational and fun, and you will leave with a new knowledge of how to build with bales. To sign up and to learn more about my other workshops, please visit www.StrawBale.com/store. Thanks and I hope to bale with you soon!
