              UPCOMING  COURSES

     

Bamboo Building Immersion Course

              @ Rama Organica

          Diamante Valley, Costa Rica

April 30th - May 8th, 2020

In the lectures and hands-on workshops you will learn:

* Bamboo varieties, harvesting, processing, treatment, and curing methods

*Bamboo Design and Model Making

* Bamboo splitting, bending, drilling, pegging, lashing, fish mouths and other joinery techniques

* Bamboo finishing methods, and maintenance strategies

* Bamboo & hardwood pin, and binder stick making

*Bamboo Furniture Techniques

* Bamboo wattle and split panels

* Bamboo Dome Assembly

* Specialty tools for Bamboo Construction

During this week-long course, we will construct a small bamboo structure, completing the entire framing process from start to finish. 

 This course is designed for those who would like practical natural building skills and hands-on experience working with bamboo. It would suit owner-developers, professional contractors, permaculturists, or those interested to build with regenerative and sustainable materials and methodologies. No prior experience or special skills with bamboo are necessary; only a reasonable level of physical fitness and willingness to learn.
