Welcome 

Rebearth is an earth building venture, founded in Scotland by mud and mortar mason, Becky Little. By learning from the past and working with nature, we want to celebrate and develop the skills and traditions of earth. Our mission is to make, mend, and experiment with subsoils, lime and natural materials to spread the knowledge and joy of earth building in all its forms, including cob, mudwall, clay and hemp, wattle and daub, turf building, soft capping, clay plasters, earth sculpture and decoration. We are also experts in the use of clay and lime mortars with stone.

Rebearth was created out of my need for a more soulful and holistic approach to building and my desire to share the knowledge that I have gained over the past 20 years.

Stay wild and keep learning……

When I set up my company Rebearth a couple of years ago after a long period of illness I was given much needed support and advice from various places. In particular Firstport, a charitable organisation for social enterprises, gave me the confidence I needed to focus my skills and energy on the thing that I love and to share my experience and knowledge with others. I would urge any budding entrepreneurs to look them up: www.facebook.com/FirstportScotland/. Here I am last year with Scott and Billy, two delightful stone masons who joined me to learn about repairing traditional mudwall buildings. ... See MoreSee Less
