2014 Introduction to Timber Framing
Date(s) - 05/06/2014 - 08/06/2014
Whether it’s a small pizza oven in the backyard or an entire home, natural building techniques are enjoying a resurgence in popularity as they prove to be durable, low-cost, low-impact, and toxin-free. At OUR Ecovillage in Shawnigan Lake, natural building techniques ranging from timber framing to earthship, cob, rammed earth, natural plaster, and more are taught in 2–6 week internships that allow students to build much of a structure.
However, for those with a casual interest or without the time required to co-create an entire building, OUR Ecovillage is offering an exciting slate of short courses this summer:
$480/4 days (includes meals and 3 nights camping)
Learn the basics of this beautiful round pole framing method where mortice and tenon, pegs, and precision are instrumental in raising a building. OUR teachers come from the old world crafters guild lineage and have much to share with the North American construction/timberframe industry.
