About this event

Join us for our next sustainability mastermind session where we will welcome Barbara Jones to talk about her work in straw bale construction and answer any questions you might have. We will discuss how architects are using natural materials, and what advantages these can bring.

About Barbara Jones:

Through Barbara's work as a builder, teacher, mentor, designer, entrepreneur and author of her book 'Building with Straw Bales,' she is able to deliver on her long lasting passion for providing affordable, high quality and healthy homes for ordinary people.

Barbara has run her own business since 1989, initially a women’s roofing and building company (Amazon Nails). In 1994 she came across strawbale building and through a Winston Churchill Fellowship was able to learn all about it and introduce it to the UK and Europe. Amazon Nails became Straw Works (Architects) and the School of Natural Building (education & training). Barbara has been involved in hundreds of affordable & healthy buildings made only with natural and low embodied energy materials. Also, since 1994 Barbara has been designing foundations without cement. Currently she is working with 4 other EU countries on an Interreg funded project to increase the number of public buildings made of straw (Up Straw), writing a Technical Guide to Building Regs for straw buildings, and working with EcoCocon straw panels as a way of bringing affordable healthy housing to a wider audience.
