Guerilla House are branching out into ferrocement water storage tanks. This was their first workshop, and they managed to raise money for materials with crowdfunding
and are producing a booklet for the funders. I was privileged to be there on day one to prepare the base which is vital for creating a stable tank, as they are heavy when filled with water. Unfortunately I had to leave just when the cement was being prepared for casting as I had to attend an Afforest seminar (about building tiny urban forests) and I missed something really exciting, but you can see the pictures on Guerilla House's facebook page including one with me shedding sparks while using power tools... not to be missed !
