    Welcome to Earthbuilding School

    Hi! I am Verena.

    I am a leading natural building artisan with 28 years experience.

    Through my business SolidEarth Ltd I have been a driving force in natural building in NZ since 2002, and I draw on a background in Architectural Design and BBE.

    Natural Plasters are one of my professional passions. In 2017 I was awarded the NAWIC Trades Woman of the Year Award.

    I was very fortunate to deepen my knowledge of Tadelakt by studying with Ryan Chivers from Limestrong, who opened my eyes to the possibilities of producing Tadelakt from local materials. 

    I have taught numerous in-person workshops and now share my life's work with students online, with much joy and satisfaction.

    Yes, I'm in!
