Hemp Earth

Part of a series of short videos made by a previous volunteer at CAT showing some of the materials and techniques studied during the practical modules on the Professional Diploma in Architecture: Advanced Environmental and Energy Studies courses and the MSc Sustainability and Adaptation (and the built environment) course at CAT.

Less well known than hemp and lime is hemp and earth. The video shows what the hemp shiv and earth consistency look like. It shows methods for mixing the hemp and earth and it shows how the hemp and earth is applied as a plaster onto hemp and lime walls.
