It gives you the opportunity to work on site together with our local workmen supervised by master masons Ahmed Abdallah and Ahmed Soliman who will explain and learn you how to build vaults and domes with mudbricks.
Come to the Egyptian oasis to discover Design With Nature. Choose your nature weekend, week or workshop.
If you prefer to interact with us from your comfortable chair at home we will provide the project with a live stream camera so you can see how we work with limestone rocks, mud, sand, straw and water.
Jump-start your craftsmanship. Upcoming workshop schedule.
