A free community event open to run build projects or ideas past an expert will be held at the Long Table, Brimscombe on the last Friday of every month.
After a successful first session, Anna Usborne, together with her partner Tomas Millar is renovating a bungalow in Thrupp using second-hand materials and a ‘light touch’ approach.
Their mission has taken them on an unusual journey with their renovation. Progress has been slower than traditional builds but this has enabled them to really look at environmental issues in construction such as material recycling and provenance as well as drive down the cost.
Anna grew up on building sites watching her father restore a local farm and his ‘give it a go’ approach with building has definitely rubbed off. She later did a degree and masters in Ceramics and 3D design and has since been involved in making furniture and lighting. She was also the instigator of the Chalford Donkey Project which brought together donkeys and community, helping to deliver groceries by donkey around the village of Chalford.
After a short presentation by Anna, there will be an opportunity to discuss your architectural problems. A chance to chat with local experts about a project or idea. A place to listen to speakers on a range of topics related to building and living.
