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.

Mudwalling Scottish style - Mix clay soil and straw (and maybe some sand) in a shallow pit with a digger. Pile the mix onto the wall in layers and walk on it with toes facing outwards.....body weight and the swinging action of the fork compact the mud and create a tight face. Minimal trimming and no stamping, gentle and steady all the way to the top. ... See MoreSee Less
