Visit the Strawbale Studio website (www.strawbalestudio.org) for our Calendar of Events and inspiring information on sustainable living! The Strawbale Studio is an enchanting thatched roof structure, located on rural wooded land one hour north of Detroit, which can be toured. The Strawbale Studio Educational Program provides workshops in natural building, sustainable living and natural arts as well as internships & volunteer opportunities. Presentations can be made for your group on site or at your location. Hand-made "Earth Art" sculptures are also for sale. A Case Study of the Strawbale Studio done by the State of Michigan Energy Office is available at http://www.michigan.gov/documents/CIS_EO_Straw_Bale_Case_Study_101340_7.pdf

The Strawbale Studio and other projects on the land explore the relationship between people and nature. Local materials found in nature are used to gracefully sculpt spaces that nourish the soul. The Strawbale Studio with its artistic shape, thatched roof and earthen plasters is a unique and enchanting structure! Several other projects and buildings have been created on site as well: an Earthen Oven, aRocket Stove Heated Bench, a wattle and daub structure called the Spiral Chamber, and the new Oxford Kid's Cottage, under construction.



We humans, like all other of earth’s creatures, have an innate sense and ability to create our own dwellings! Throughout the world homes are created from materials at hand. We can reclaim this wisdom and joy, building in community with each other and the natural world! We can also add natural materials and sustainable ideas to our existing dwellings!

Check out the classes and opportunities by visiting www.strawbalestudio.org !
