Ecopod Workshop

Ecopod Workshop

Ecopod workshopEcopods were made by hand at our Ecopod workshop in Brighton by father and son team – Peter and Gar Rock.  Peter is co-owner of ARKA Ecopod Ltd with Hazel Ellison.

We obtained our supply of post consumer newspapers from Magpie – Brighton’s original curbside collection and recycling co-operative and we converted these into paper clay, with the use of a pre-war dough machine.

The clay was laid by hand into fibreglass moulds and dried in a specially designed heating chamber for 6 days, before starting the second stage of production. That involved steaming and sanding each lid and base into its final shape and fit.

Each Ecopod was finished to order, which is why it took us two working days to send out a coloured Ecopod and five working days for the gold Ecopod from order.
