Workshops

Thanks for checking out our workshop page! We are always announcing new workshop opportunities, though in the winter months we tend to slow down as far as teaching is concerned. In the meantime, sign up for our newsletter here to receive course information as soon as it is published. When we’re not teaching, we may be either consulting on a project, or helping someone on their own project through our other building services. If you have a natural building project in mind, we can help you!

Feel free to email us if your interested in participating in upcoming courses, or if you have any specific interests.
