This year in summertime there will be a European Strawbale Congress in
Belgium with workshops and everything. Unfortunately there is no information
available in English yet as far as I know.

As it so happens, a message showed up in my mailbox yesterday which
mentioned the following:

I've never attended the workshops hosted by Athena and Beel Steen but I
have seen a video of one and
it was easy to spot a number of "professionals" amongst the attendees.
(The professionals were the ones that looked lost initially when
confronted with working with non-storebought materials).
Quite frankly, I think that the Euro-pee'ins should look at somehow
expanding the workshops to enable more people to attend, if for no other
reason, to amortise the embodied energy of the trip over a broader base.
(But I'm sure that most baleheads can think of more and arguably better
reasons for expanding the workshops. ie Satomi referred to Beel as "old
man" in a photo she sent out on Beel's last birthday. Can't expect the old
geezer to last forever . Eh ? Gather in your Steen workshops while ye
may, for tomorrow ... )
