I've been hosting since 2012 and so far have met a wonderful group of people through workaway. My project is to restore an old french farm house using original materials, or recreating the original materials whenever possible. I can teach you about lime, wood working, clay and lime plaster, and stone work. The next project I'll be focusing on is to restore the ancient tile floor in the original kitchen. The original tiles were set on a bed of clay and sand that is now full of holes meaning that a lot of tiles have cracked into tiny fragments. I'll be rebuilding this over the coming months. I'm also an artist and teach a preindustrial method of metal casting. Many people who come also do music, drawing, or other types of art and I've lots of space for that. If you'd like to come I suggest that you consider coming for a week and we see how it goes, if we all like each other at the end of the week then usually you are welcome to stay longer although sometimes, depending on my schedule, I have to leave for work.
