I've been hosting since 2012 and so far have met a wonderful group of people through workaway. Lately however, I haven't been hosting due to work commitments mostly in the US, but I hope to be able to offer some limited time in the coming year. 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 handmade tiles need to be set in a lime mortar, it's a bit tricky because each tile is a different size and thickness! I'm also an artist and teach a pre-industrial 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.
