Kalapana workshops



  • Aloha! Will you be holding your Kalapana workshops if there is a lot of rain?
    How will that work since we am expecting a hands-on class?

  • I just attended a day long workshop in Kalapana with Hajjar and the clan and it was awesome!! The teachers in training were super knowledgeable, clear, friendly, and helpful. The hands-on experience you gain working with the material and being able to pick their brains when a question pops into your head is invaluable. From sourcing materials, to determining price per square foot, to the most updated recipes and building ideas, we learned so much! I am super inspired to start building my first structure (probably an egg shaped outhouse) and feel equipped to start experimenting with this building material. To build an entire dome house start to finish, a 10 day workshop would be necessary as we only witnessed a half constructed dome and imagine there being some tricks of the trade when getting close to laying the last block at the top. I live on Hawaii island and spend most of my time either in Kohala or Puna. If anyone is interested in joining me with my first build, I would love to play aircrete with you. I highly suggest signing up for the day-long workshop if there are still spaces available and if you are on Hawaii Island.
