Irish National Herritage Park
International Festival of Earthen Architecture. The biggest earth building event in the UK and Ireland! Follow this link for more information.
This year’s festival will be held at the Irish National Heritage Park, Wexford. This central location not only brims with life, but also LOTS of the local earth vernacular
The festival will combine teaching core skills at beginners, semi-skilled and skilled levels with a spirit of curiosity and invention. Earth building is having a renaissance with people trying many new ways to work with some of the oldest materials and techniques. From the structural to aesthetic, thermal properties to colour this festival hopes to encourage and show that earth in buildings can exceed all expectations. At past Clayfests, there has been built (among other things) a rammed earth vault, a mobius strip in cob and Scotland’s first turf wall in centuries. This year, what will it be?!
