Earthship/eco home building courses in the uk? Answered

Hey gurus of instructable, I have wanted to build an earthship or eco home all my life and now I have final decided to go for it. I have been looking for courses and classes but I can only find one and that is down south in brighton. I have heard many shinning reviews of the course but as I live in Yorkshire brighton is a little impractical. Does anyone know of any courses up north? Also how does one get involved with helping people build their earthships and eco masterpieces?

Might be worth having a look at the Hockerton Housing Project, even though the HHP dwellings probably don't meet the full earthship criteria. Hockerton is closer to home than Brighton - Notts - and they run occasional tours. The various downloadable technical factsheets look like they might be useful.

Considering the alternative is probably in New Mexico, Brighton doesn't seem that bad.

I have doubts that you can build an unmodified Earthship in the UK - Building regs willl probably get you.

Yes that's why I tagged it as a earthship/eco house. The best courses seem to be down south :(
