How to Make Mud Bricks (Video)

You probably know by now I’m a fan of all kinds of pre-industrial skills, and making mud bricks from mud and straw is one of the coolest skills for a homesteader to know. It might not be the most practical way to obtain bricks in our modern life, as they’re pretty labor-intensive, but it is a pretty foundational thing to know. You never know when you might be able to benefit from the basics of brick-making.

After all, when you buy them from the hardware store, they have been made from hand somewhere, and there are still low-wage workers in third-world countries making them by hand either for themselves or for import. So when the grid goes down or the global economy reaches crisis, being able to say, build your own grill or outdoor oven could be game-changing.

Watch this handy artisan make super basic, classic bricks that anyone can make. Enjoy!
