June 12th - 17th 2017 EBUKI [Earth Building UK & Ireland] / EMESS Clayfest.

EBUKI has run a number of successful Clayfest events in Scotland, Ireland and Cumbria.
The proposed programme is four days of workshops at the Heritage Skills Centre, Lincoln Castle, followed by a conference at Lincoln University and on Saturday 17th a tour of earth buildings, with a focus on mud and stud.
The event will be truly international with demonstrators and speakers from all over Europe.
EMESS will be running workshops in the Castle grounds where we will hope to build a scaled down mud and stud.
The main focus of the event will be mud and stud which will help in raising awareness. If you would like to take part in any capacity please turn up to our next meeting on 10th December or contact me direct.

October meeting.
The meeting was held at Hill Holt Wood with a fascinating demonstration on building with earth followed by a talk about the rammed earth building at Hill Holt, both by Professor Rowland Keable. Afterwards members had a short tour of the woods and traveled to the university to see progress on the Hexagonium.

New build project.
The project to build a new mud and stud at the Village Museum in Skegness is progressing well. 
It was decided to construct an experimental building at Lincoln University to enable thermal testing of various materials, wall thickness's and methods of construction. Students have constructed a six sided building, the 'Hexagonium', with 14 different panels that will be tested for u/values once the mud has dried. The tests will be carried out during the next 12 months with more experiments being conducted as a result of the construction.
