15.12.2017 : Clay Architecture

Morocco is famous for its historical clay archtecture - having its revival also due to tourism searching for the local/national flavour. For twenty years the German clay expert Manfred Fahnert travels each year with students for two-week excursions to Morocco to teach them those local techniques and to help via that initiative to revitalize traditional culture.

The next wo two-week workshops are planned for March 2018 in the Kasbah Caid Ali el Jadida in Asslim in southern Morocco. The special learnings will be rammed earth floors and traditional ceiling constructions as well as the three traditional clay techniques such as clay bricks making and processing, multi-layer clay plasters and rammed earth masonry.
