Very interesting and in my part of the world.

Do you plan any courses for this year at weekends or in evenings? I'd love to attend, but alas the day job intrudes...

I'm not sure what that means Alex, the OP was talking about her courses and I was just saying that I have the footprint for a roundhouse if anyone wants to run a course here. There aren't any plans to run one at the mo, I don't have any experience with them but I'd love someone to come and build me one!

:lol: we've got our own going atm (well, two friends and the loony clan -us- throwing mud at the wall and hoping it'll stick).
Give me a couple of years and I may have a project for a course too (or 2, or 3). But better get to architecture school first! :lol: :lol:
