As an adult, it is easy to forget the joy of learning through doing. I have recently had the luck of having my passion for learning kinaesthetically reignited and I would recommend this workshop to absolutely anyone and everyone.
One of the things I have been impressed with is the idea of the partnership between ‘customer’ and ‘provider’ of work. The ethos of the Co-operative is to encourage the owners to join in and experiment for themselves. This can cut down cost and spread the knowledge around.
I’ve also looked at various alternatives mixes for various projects in Ireland and at one stage facilitated the construction of a hemp-magnesium test cell in my own garden. I realised with time that most formulations varied too much, were not supported by scientific testing, were not mixed consistently on site, and during construction were tamped too densely with too much water.
