Welcome 

Rebearth is a company specialising in building and finishes using raw earth and natural materials. It was founded in Scotland by mud mason, Becky Little.

We have 25 years of experience in earth building techniques including mudwall (cob),  wattle and daub, light clay and hemp, turf building, soft capping, clay plasters, earth sculpture and decoration.

By learning from the past and working with nature, we celebrate and develop the skills and traditions of earth building.

See below for Rebearth on Facebook where you will find posts about our most recent work, upcoming events and links to all things earthy.

Yesterday’s neolithic pottery day - Firing in a pit kiln and making pots with field dug clay soils from Orkney, Fife, and Northumberland. Good building soils making good pottery soils with huge potential for archaeological research. Pot fragments are left behind while mud wall, daub and turf buildings disappear. A rich seam of unexplored connections around local materials, ancient technologies and decoration. With Simple Shelters and Neolithic specialists Mike and Claire Copper. #wildpottery #neolithicpottery #centreforstewardship #earthenarchaeology ... See MoreSee Less

Love the colors! I am about to try a small pit fire with local clays in central AZ. No fire ban for a few months. I'm curious....any ideas you might suggest for your pit? Type of fuel and time? Any photos? I love your work, and it inspires my building designs. Thank you!

How do you get these colours?

exciting and beautiful.

Loving the green and blue - the neolithic ball is fab!! 😉

The clay pizza oven in progress with the Simple Shelters team in Falkland. It’s been used a few times already with great success. Going to give it some simple but lovely decoration in the spring. #clayoven #earthbuilding #centreforstewardship ... See MoreSee Less

Adventures with wild pottery. Normally I create buildings from the soil beneath my feet but it's just a small step to shape these same soils into vessels and then place them in a fire. Which is what we will be doing with these wee pots at the weekend. I'll let you know how we get on..... ... See MoreSee Less

I’m doing the same but for the first time. I’d love an idea of how many hours it takes of an average fire for it to be done

I started making clay things in my studio today for the first time! I'm SO excited and happy. Found an enormous Plane leaf to make a plate with. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Training with earth mortars, mudwall, daub and light earth at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust yesterday. Such a great opportunity to try new soils and mixes, learn skills and make friends. Whenever I am teaching I like to introduce an amount of experimentation and play....it keeps things fresh for all of us. ... See MoreSee Less

I would love to learn how to mix and use mud mortars!
