Critical Concrete, a non-profit organization based in Porto, Portugal, announced a series of 5-day workshops on hemp concrete construction techniques, better known as hempcrete. These workshops will provide a theoretical and practical basis for working with this versatile and sustainable building material, while also contributing to a social housing project. The workshops will take place between the 15th of May and the 2nd of June, in Vila Chã, a parish in the municipality of Esposende, located 45 minutes from Porto.

The workshops will be given by engineer César Cardoso, from Natura Matéria, and will cover theoretical and practical aspects of construction with hempcrete, including hemp sourcing, application methods, material performance and various blends of hempcrete. They aim to educate architects, builders, engineers, self-builders, students and anyone interested in building methods with hempcrete or natural building materials.
