  4. Kevin McCloud, presenter of Channel 4's 'Grand Designs', introduces us to a world of beautiful, practical and natural buildings.

    From clay and cob, to straw bale and timber framing, learn how using natural and local materials is not only economical, but creates a unique home that is strong and durable.

    Natural buildings are an ancient tradition with a modern appeal. Creating healthy, beautiful homes from natural materials such as earth, straw and timber, building naturally is the ultimate expression of ecological design. Building isn’t ‘done' to us – it can be done by us. The skills and techniques used in natural building are hands-on and accessible, enabling us all to design our own healthy living spaces bring people and the elements together.

    Jo Forsyth, Rowland Keable and straw bale expert Barbara Jones explains how these traditional methods have been used for centuries whilst the drawbacks of modern materials are becoming more evident.

    The UK has a rich tradition of natural building and natural architecture that is seeing a renewed interest. Building naturally is one such response to Living With The Land.
