Note: This course is only for group of students from a college/institution/university

Thannal Hand Sculpted Homes is a Natural Building Awareness Group, based in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu. Founded by Ar. Biju Bhaskar, in 2011, we aim at reviving Natural Buildings with breathing Mud walls, stabilized with lime and natural admixtures. Using locally available natural materials without adulterating reduces exploitation of nature. The effective way to learn about Natural materials is to build with it.

Workshops facilitate learning about materials and techniques through hands-on work (1:1 scale) and observe wide range of experimentations done in our campus. Inferences from such experiences can strengthen confidence in building with Natural Materials. Availability of experienced workers for assistance and required materials in the right preparation has enhanced ambience in our campus in Tiruvannamalai for such an endeavour. The course also includes Rural Study and Documentation of indigenous & contemporary mud buildings.

What all you’ll be experiencing on site:

  • Water tanks made with Mud and Lime.
  • The Singing Dervish Studio, using cob.
  • Earth bag studio.
  • Sensing Natural living.
  • Animal shelter using different wall systems
