Workshop Instructor - Raghu Raahi 

Raghuveersingh Rathore, also known as Raghu Raahi, is a passionate traveler who has dedicated himself to exploring various regions of India and Southeast Asia. During his extensive journeys, he discovered his profound interest in natural building techniques and sustainable architecture. Over the past five years, Raghu has actively volunteered at numerous locations, honing his skills and expanding his knowledge in the field of natural building and sustainable architecture.

His pursuit of sustainable architecture led him to Nepal, where he had the opportunity to learn Earthbag dome construction under the guidance of a certified instructor from CalEarth. Equipped with this newfound expertise, Raghu has since constructed a couple of domes in Andhra Pradesh and Pune, showcasing his dedication to creating environmentally friendly and innovative structures.
