mud bricks in mudgee


The bricks + cartwheels team recently spent a whole weekend in Mudgee learning the art of mud brick making. bricks + cartwheels has recently been exploring the potential of using stabilised soil block as a construction technique for the Secondary School for Girls, Kenya.

The weekend at Mudgee was the perfect opportunity to test the construction methods of building mud bricks from scratch. Gerry, from Rosby Vineyard, was an amazing teacher and bricks + cartwheels learned the ins and outs of building mud bricks. bricks + cartwheels did it all, from digging out the sludge from the dam to mixing and packing the mud hard into the moulds with our hands!


It was great to learn exactly what materials, equipment, time and labour is needed to build the mud bricks. The weekend ended up being very successful for everyone involved. We had a great time making and learning all about mud bricks and most importantly Gerry and Kay from the Rosby Vineyard ended up with 102 mud bricks to build their new studio!

Check out the Rosby website here. They make a damn fine red!

The rotor is crafted of 22 gold and is adorned with the replica watches of a wind rose, a predecessor to the compass rose found on maps and charts, which enhances the style of this watch as a travelers timepiece. While the final hublot replica will need to be reserved for when we can handle this watch in the metal, I think hublot replica is a really clever watch design from the brand. The rolex watches offers a mix of high durability, replica watches uk versatility, beautiful finishing and a useful complication in the replica watches sale package. Going to be a smashing beautifully executed piece of horology. The detail on the reverse is just as well executed. A bugbear of mine is the watchmaker which acquires a defunct brand in order to buy history, even though the watches it produces have no link to that history. It is an updated version of the original diver watch now featuring rolex watches and Swiss case components and a 2018 rolex replica automatic watches store.
