What is a Hempcrete Workshop?

What is a hemp construction workshop?

Not only will you learn everything you need to know about how to build with hempcrete, you will use your own two hands to construct a hempcrete building as a class. The educational workshops are taught by professionals from Left Hand Hemp who are eager to teach all that wish to learn. Once you will learn the properties, recipes, versatility, the replacement of conventional building and how to properly insulate with hempcrete, you will be awarded a certificate of completion on a hempcrete structure in the United States (there are currently less than 50 structures in this country). Starting from a post and beam structure, we will construct a building made from hemp, lime and water. Come with questions, excitement and a mind ready to learn!

In the construction industry?

We invite all industry professionals, home-renovators, off-grid builders and those interested in building sustainable communities to come learn for yourself exactly how to build with hempcrete. It is an easy and sustainable method, so come learn why hempcrete is among the oldest insulating materials on Earth!
