Program:

Earthen floors, the term recalls the rammed earth, a poor material, easily available. With dirt you can create resistant, beautiful, cozy, durable and easily washable floors.cracks 4

During the course we will see, depending on the different needs (insulation, underfloor heating, etc.), which stratigraphy can be realized.

We will put our hands in dirt! In fact, we will be able to prepare different layers of the floor using different ingredients.

We will then see how to analyse a land to verify its characteristics and the possibility of using it to create a floor … with local clay !!!
