This is the book I had to write! – so many people were asking us how we built cafe Eutopia while we were trying to serve coffee!:) It tells a bit about how we came to build it, the vision, ups and downs of doing it, then gets into the How-to’s of it all. There are lots of diagrams and photos. This is the description for the latest edition:
If you have ever wanted to sculpt or build in a permanent material that is extremely strong and can be moulded to any shape, ferrocement is the medium for you – and this concise book shows you how. Tools, techniques and sample projects – a garden pot, angel, dome, and more – are all logically described and illustrated. The many photos showing the building of Cafe Eutopia will inspire and inform.
