Arches, Vaults & Domes - Masonry
The AVD Masonry course is a practical, hands-on week in which trainees study constructive principles and techniques, and build various types and scales of arches, vaults and domes. The course focuses on the use of Compressed Stabilised Earth Block (CSEB) as a building material and vault construction methods developed by AVEI (e.g. the Free-spanning technique). Students comfortable with the academic level often take the AVD Theory course in tandem with this one.
