Earth Building UK Conference and AGM 2012, January 13th, York.
The conference will explore the use of earth and clay plasters with leading experts. The use of earth and clay plasters has increased in recent years, with interest groups concerned with the conservation of historic buildings, ecologically sensitive new construction, alongside a growing interest from industry in innovative materials.
The conference is a brilliant opportunity to meet fellow EBUK member and exchange ideas.
