Crowdfunding update!

Hi all!

As we approach the beginning of our workshop (only about two weeks away), we just wanted to thank everyone who has supported the team thus far.

We will be taking our Generosity crowdfunding campaign offline next week.

However, before doing so we wanted to give everyone one last chance to donate towards the cause! Check out the Generosity campaign website. Take a look at the offered incentives! Some pretty cool stuff on there!

If you have already donated, thank you! And please help us spread the word! Thanks in advance to any new supporters!

Feel free to get in touch with us with any questions. Also, we are still looking for volunteers to join the team! Email us at weft2017@gmail.com.

Thanks and Weft on!

Hi everyone!

We are excited to announce a new team member, Ally Hawk!

A couple of things about Ally. She loves to paint and watercolor and enjoys spending time outdoors, at the beach, hiking with her pup, biking, and running. She is excited for this adventure because it aligns with her goals of learning how to build adobe/wattle and daub homes. Specifically, she is interested in studying the differences and similarities between traditional, earthen construction techniques and typical techniques that are seen in the US. Also, she is interested in analyzing the effects of build workshops on the local community.

Akwaaba Ally!

The workshop is quickly approaching! Reserve your spot on the team now! Email us at weft2017@gmail.com

Thanks!
