Adobe is a sustainable, biodegradable,
non-toxic, locally available, basically free building material that you can learn to use at CASA.

Based in Taos, New Mexico, our workshops draw from centuries of local tradition and decades of professional experience to deliver adobe building techniques proven in the field by Master Enjarradora Anita Rodriguez and her trusted team.

Learn the authentic tradition

Taos has been an epicenter for Earth building technologies for as long as one thousand years. This prolonged amount of time, and our culturally complex history, has allowed for the blending of Indigenous and Hispanic building styles to create the unique architecture of Northern New Mexico.
