If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be a straw bale workshop host, this “workshop host video” will help answer many of your questions. It was put together by a couple who participated in my Junction City, CA workshop in 2010. I hope you enjoy it.
It’s always fun to see the different perspectives that both participants and hosts experience the workshops from. After having taught so many workshops, I’ve learned that everyone sees things differently. Everyone learns differently too. Sometimes hearing from others is a great way to find a sense of comfort with a process. I get that hosting can be stressful if you have not experienced a straw bale workshop yourself in advance. That’s why I now require hosts to attend a workshop before they can host. It helps them see things from the participant side, ask questions of both me and the host, and get a sense of what’s expected. It makes for an easier and more effective experience on their own build.
