Fabric Formed Concrete

Last week was very exciting with the International Society of Fabric Forming workshop going on, led by YM instructor Sandy Lawton and Norwich University professor Eleanor D'Aponte. It was quite an international crew, from Copenhagen to Manitoba to Chile and a few locals mixed in too! They worked for over a week to prepare forms and pour the first two walls of what will be our future concrete cabin.

Check out the slideshow of the progress:

We'll continue in the spring pouring more wall, beams, and a roof (to be planted as a green roof). Stay tuned!
