Turn the earth under your feet into natural, cheap, beautiful art: African-inspired murals, fanciful playground sculptures, labyrinths, sundials, sculpted benches, bird houses, & more - this is a complete illustrated how-to guide to mud, art, & community. Inspiring stories & colour photos from earth-artists around the world, for teachers, parents, activists, builders, artists and children. Here is inspiration and instruction for anyone interested in making beautiful art out of earth.

The author of Build Your Own Earth Oven teaches you to find, mix and sculpt the right mud, develop group goals and vision, and translate simple, natural (and easy to draw) patterns into sophisticated and complex designs. The resulting murals will transform anonymous "spaces" into real places. Or make "garden art" you can sit on (or in). Get inspired by earth artists around the globe. Join them all in making art to help "join us, harmoniously, to a whole." The book is elegant, and generously illustrated with drawings and 32 pages of colour photos.
