Are you keen to specify natural materials but aren’t sure where to start? Do you already work with natural materials and are looking to expand your knowledge? Join us at the new monthly Natural Materials events series to learn the crucial role natural materials play in a positive future for our planet – and how to use them on your projects.


After a month off for COP26, we’re excited to be back with a masterclass in Building with Hemp, kicking off at 7pm on Thursday 2nd December. Hemp plants are low-maintenance and fast growing, taking only 100 days to reach full growth, and during the growth stage lock away up to 2 tonnes of CO2 per tonne of fibre harvested.Hemp has huge potential as a bio-material, from paper to plastics and in many different construction uses from insulation to structural elements.
