The project focuses on different teaching methods of natural waterproof technique tadelakt and other techniques of natural building. During the project the partners from Estonia, Spain and Portugal exchange their experiences on teaching adults in the field of natural building, they get new teaching and working skills, their language skills develop and they get new international experiences.

As a result of the project a tadelakt step-by-step guide will be made and it remains available in Internet for everybody. The guide will be in Estonian, Spanish, Portuguese and English. The guide will be prepared by the Estonian and Spanish partner who have years of experience with tadelakt, and it is tested on the Portuguese partner and on the unemployed persons involved in the project. Here are the long version and the short printable version of the guide, both in four languages:
the guide in English
