Dear all,

Just want to catch this email flow, and offer to host workshops for any 
other 'Masters' touring Europe. We run the 'PermaLot Centre for Natural 
building' in Czech Republic, a NGO initiative inspired by the Cob 
Cottage Company and similar facilities in Norway and Russia. Our aim is 
to teach the trade of Natural building to CEE country participants. 
We're still limited by the fact that we are only able to offer 
'in-house' accommodation during summer season, but are actively looking 
for funding to create accommodation for 18 people upstairs in our 120 
year old farm building.
We just renovated our site: www.permalot.org, and I'd encourage any 
educators among you to make use of the new 'comic book' manuals I'm 
making. You'll find them under the 'resources' tab on the site.

Here's some links for the Portuguese architect in case he'd prefer to 
save our planet from more CO2 pollution from his travel(!), and may want 
to stay home in Portugal and connect to the following:

The square SB approach by architect/earth builder Eduardo Carvalho and 
friends: http://www.planob.com/eng/planob.html
The curvy SB approach of Tamera: http://www.tamera.org/index.php?id=509&L=0
...Or the more home made approach of 'Luzku-Fuzku', which currently are 
involved in making a micro theater of SB and cob: 

Naturally, another option is to join us all at the Euro Strawbale 
Gathering in Belgium in August, where several masters will be showing 
their different approaches...
