Worshops of 2018 Cutting bottle-ends on a slate and tile cutter Pharmacist at work creating a mortar and pestle. A cradle is ready to receive this large log-end. A student puts finishing touches to his pointing Fun pointing! Rob checks on the wall. One of our younger students enjoys putting jewels in the wall. Safety first! One of the students takes this young one under his wing. Or, is it the other way round! Doing a great job finishing up to the under side of the rafter. Showing off the MIM ( mortar insulation mortar) guide. Pouring sawdust insulation into the cavity between the inner and outer mortar joints. Too much fun! Holding a ball of mortar ready to ‘fill the teeth’, to support the logs from things that go bump in the night. Tricky work at the top of the wall. We say use the largest log possible to reach from the cradle to the roof leaving enough space for a final mortar joint. A bottle-end is treated the same way as a log-end.
