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.

If you would like to create exciting sculptural forms and decorative finishes using clay, fibre, willow, rope, blocks, with daubing, moulding, carving, shaping, weaving, printing and polishing then come and join us on our workshop at Clayfest in June. The idea is to push the boundaries of traditional techniques and invent some new ones as we go.
These experimental structures were created at the Grains d'Isere festival in France but give you a flavour of what is possible in a few days. www.lincolncastle.com/ebuki-clayfest-2017

The amazing world of lichen. I had a revelation last night. I live right next to an old graveyard and often sit there enjoying the peace but last night I was struck by the beauty of the surfaces on the gravestones......a delicate creeping multi-coloured camouflage of plants and minerals. It got me thinking again about aging, and transformation and the physical marks we make in the landscape that can only be temporary, however permanent we would like them to be. ... See MoreSee Less

Sian LoftusI’m lich-ing Lund on Unst, where amongst the many beautiful headstones is this one which has lichen that is mirroring the round decorative pattern on the headstone.2 days ago   ·  1

I'm still buzzing from the creative possibilities that opened up during my time in Milan....this sample was a revelation about how earth plaster can be glossy and wonderfully smooth - by polishing a mix containing old fermented rice straw and a small amount of lime. I love the contrasts in texture too with the rough background. ... See MoreSee Less

Learning and sharing experience at a workshop in Milan led by Japanese master plasterer Kenji Matsuki. I now understand the vital role of fibre (as opposed to sand) in Japanese clay plasters, the importance of slowing down to create ease and workability with the materials, the priority of aesthetics over longevity (repairing with skill and grace is part of the story) and deep respect for tools, especially trowels. I am also very lucky to be learning from other skilled craftspeople from Italy, Estonia, Germany and Switzerland. This is why workshops work, and all in the middle of Milan Design week where we are a living exhibit. ... See MoreSee Less

My office has evolved into an art studio where I am developing a range of decorative earth plasters. When I started Rebearth a couple of years ago after years of being a traditional builder I didn't really know where I was heading, only that I would focus on creating with earth and nature. I love this particular strand of the journey. ... See MoreSee Less
