I'm Laura, I'm 20 years old and I'm from Antwerp, Belgium. I'm a sculpture student and construction enthusiast.
In 2019 I took a year off in-between my studies and did 8 different workaway construction projects in France and Germany. Now that I've experienced the joy of traveling and working with other volunteers and hosts I'm hoping to continue this journey throughout my studies as well.
So far i have experience in masonry, i know basic welding, a bit of woodwork, gardening, cooking and i spent about 4 weeks building walls until the only thing i saw when i went to bed was stones and stones and stones.
I'm a very hands-on kind of person, i really enjoy getting into work, learning new skills and dealing with the inevitable struggles of manual labour. I learn quite quickly and i'm looking to improve my building skills, especially carpentry! I'm also interested in learning more about permaculture and sustainable living.
The main joy i got out of my previous workaway experiences is the connections i made with people from all over the world. I hope i can continue connecting with new communities, sharing meals and stories and becoming a bit more open every day.
If you need a helping hand and are willing to teach me your craft I would be absolutely happy to help you out in any way I can.
Hope to see you soon!
