The final finishing touches, smooth plaster on walls, water in the bathrooms etc have not yet been done, but because of our workshops, we rushed to get these ready enough so that participants had somewhere to ‘camp’.
But before we get to the workshops…
And here is the finished mosaic, with Lucy having a bit of a rest….
Back a bit in time, and we have also made two roundhouses, interwoven like a figure of eight. Not only interwoven, but also on a slope. It was interesting how the join between the rooms worked out. Here are the foundations.
Note in the picture below that there is a cement block wall in the lower roundhouse. That is a bathroom, and in the following picture you can see that we have made a bottle decoration to bring light inside.
The inside steps joining the two circles.
The bottle decoration was repeated on the opposite wall of the lower circle.
As you can see, these roundhouses are also already in use, and in front of them is our fire – a necessity as the temperature in the early morning dropped down to 10°C in the middle of winter! This is where we had our breakfast, and our dinner during the workshops.
Next week pictures from our workshops!
