For the first time ever, Liveloula will host workshops on Lime Plasters and Tadelakt.
Tadelakt is a traditional lime-based plaster indigenous to Morroco. It’s decorative, all natural and waterproof. We have been using this material in all our natural building projects for many years and we want to invite you to our project. Come and learn about this exceptional plastering technique. Our workshops are hosted at Liveloula, just outside the beautiful village of Seliana.
On top of this inspiring workshop in our Permaculture homestead you will have the opportunity to enjoy 3 days of immersion into natural and off grid living. The course will consist of theory sessions in which you will learn about lime plaster use and tadelakt throughout history and about the wonderful properties of lime and the magical chemistry behind them.
There are practical sessions where you can explore the whole variety of tools used in plastering and practice on your own tile or stone, with a colour of plaster you have discovered and mixed yourself.
Then, you will be ready to join us for some real hands-on team work plastering on one of Liveloula’s natural built walls.
Spaces are limited to groups of 2 up to 8 people. That gives us a lot of time to really focus on your individual progress, to give you all the attention you deserve and answer all your questions. We will share healthy vegetarian meals together with fresh organic products from our gardens. There will be enough free leisure moments to explore fields of flowers and seas of green and breathe in the relaxing atmosphere of our gardens!
We can offer you camping spots on our terrain. If you do not have any camping materials yourself, feel free to ask us about availability of tents and sleeping materials. You will have access to all of Liveloula’s infrastructure such as inside and outside showers and mini pool, the natural built kitchen, hangout spaces, and gardens.
Brand new this year and deserving some special attention is our 30m2 luxurious Yurt with fully equipped private bathroom & hangout space with entrance into a magical patch of forest. Ideal for those of you that wish that extra bit of comfort and privacy. Can be booked for 1 to 4 people. When the workshop is over and you feel ready to dive into your own project, we will remain available to support you with further questions and advice.
