3rd January 2021 - Straw Clay Experiment

Clay ExperimentThis is clay from our site made into a slip and dried. This slip plus straw was pressed into formwork to make 3 densities of straw clay. Most right is a dense block probably close to cob. On the left is a very light block that just about holds together and better for insulation.

This was just an experiment, we'll do some trials with various mixes of clay and sand to make rammed earth test blocks in due course.
