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.

This year I have been lucky enough to experience earth and fibre traditions in several European countries, including this wonderful Estonian mudwall with layers of heather and juniper as reinforcement. These old methods involve local clay soils that are made workable, strong and thermally effiicient, by mixing, layering and weaving using straw, hay, wild grasses, bushes, branches and rope. Working with and inspired by nature.....which is at the heart of our Clayfest workshop next week, Why not join us.... ... See MoreSee Less

As autumn draws in I will share more of my muddy exploits from a very busy and rewarding summer. This is a photo from a recent trip to Estonia with the amazing folk at Eestimaaehitus and their course in Clay plaster and Interior Design. Colour theory, fine plasters, organic beer, wild elk, artistry in food and building. The team from Earth Building UK and Ireland will remember this experience for a long time to come. I also got to practice being an assessor in an exam which will help us roll out Scottish National Qualifications in earth building in the near future. ... See MoreSee Less

Here I am with the wonderful, creative and inspiring participants at BASEhabitat summer school where we made mud walls, wattle and daub furniture, decorative clay plasters and light earth. It's been a year of travelling and learning ......next I'm off to Estonia for a week long course in interior design using clay plaster at Eestimaaehitus with a team of craftspeople from Earth Building UK and Ireland, Another opportunity to share skills and realise that everyone does things slightly differently but it all works. ...
