We just finished our first annual Builders and Makers festival here at Two Poles in Cass Lake. What a treat! On Friday, we began by working on earth bags - the basis that the bales sit on - in this style of building. Then Jamie gave our workshop folks a master class in mud! It was quite wonderful.
Then on Saturday, we finished the earth bags, put on the bale rails and raised the bales. Such a treat.. Finally we put on the bale rails on the temp'ed in a ceiling - since we weren't ready and didn't have the time to do the rafters and roof. Soon, I'll publish a short video of Metal Mania - the jewelry making workshop with Lynn Chadwick. It was a hit - more later!
