Event Details

Please note: While our normal face to face workshops have been rearranged by coronavirus and social distancing requirements, we are offering workshops through mixed mode delivery.

This hands on workshop will give you practical experience in mixing and installing hemp as well as an opportunity to work with an experienced hemp builder. It is combined with three 2 hr zoom sessions to cover the theory component.

Please register your interest if you are interested in training and we’ll be in touch to work out a solution with you that will enable you to receive training within your needed timeframe. For participants from states other than NSW, we are arranging similar hands on practical experience with an experienced builder at a location within your state.

AHMC workshops are for Builders, Owner Builders, Architects and Building Designers and cover all aspects of working with hempcrete in the building industry.

The main focus  is on new residential construction and retrofitting to improve energy efficiency or acoustics. However use in commercial construction and restoration work (where the material excels because of its capacity to manage moisture well) will also be  covered briefly.  Critical design details are discussed. 

Our workshops are delivered by experienced trainers and builders. Over the past 3 years AHMC has supplied BCA compliant Hemp building materials and worked with hemp builders and designers and with owner builders, on 150+ residential construction projects  in multiple Australian climate zones, including in Tasmania. Our workshops share this experience. Builds using our materials have also won quite a number of significant Australian building and design awards in the past 5 years.

The workshops include hands on experience because learning to mix the Hemp lime material well is critical, as is having an understanding of the options for formwork; the requirements for framing; the techniques for installing to ensure that the outcome is both beautiful and provides optimal thermal and acoustic performance.  

You will also receive all of the resources needed to supply to your building certifier to ensure approval of your hemp building project.

Builders and Architects can use the workshop and supporting resources to qualify for CPD points. Please talk to us about this.

$660 (incl gst) pp workshop fee. At face to face workshops, morning and afternoon tea/coffee and lunch are also included each day. (There’s an opportunity to let us know about any specific dietary or other health related needs on the Workshop registration form).

Bookings are finalised when your payment is received. Max number of participants 15.
