A hugely popular course – don’t just take our word for it read previous course participants feedback below:

“If I had to choose one thing to persuade people to come to a straw bale building workshop from Strawbuild, it would be this: that you are guaranteed to be working alongside great people, from varied and interesting backgrounds – you learn as much from talking to people off the job as you do when you’re actually building.”

– Liam McDonagh-Greaves

As you know I was “converted” many years ago but the way you both taught the course was informative and enjoyable, you tackled a complex and extensive subject in a relaxed way and delivered the content professionally and comprehensively. Your willingness to work extended hours and maximize every opportunity that came along was admirable. I really hope to meet you both soon again on a project or course and to learn more of the skills that you so obviously love to share. I will be recommending you, Chris and Strawbuild to anyone who will listen.”
