Core Curriculum

 

CORE CURRICULUM WORKSHOP "A" - BUILD A DOME

Beginner | 8:30am - 6:00pm Sat/Sun |  Hesperia, CA | $450 early/$550 regular

During this weekend workshop we will complete a small dome using long SuperAdobe bags. This program together with Workshop "B" comprise the full Core Curriculum. You can take them separately or together in either order. This weekend workshop is great for anyone who wants to get the hands-on experience of building with SuperAdobe and see how it comes together with the compass geometry. 

 

CORE CURRICULUM WORKSHOP "B"  - PLASTERS AND FINISHES

Beginner | 8:30am - 6:00pm Sat/Sun  | Hesperia, CA |  $450 early/$550 regular

So you are building a dome...learn to complete your structure with plasters, advanced finishing techniques and basic design strategies that will make your SuperAdobe structure into a home! This weekend workshop can be taken before the "A" workshop but please note, we will be focusing entirely on different types of finishes, designs, materials but NOT on building.
