Costa Rica Timber Framing & Natural Building Intensive
Winter 2016 TF Workshop Nosara, Costa Rica
In 2016 we will be expanding our workshop program in Nosara, Costa Rica to include a full 2 week timber framing session, which will be followed by a 5-day natural building course. In addition, for the first time anywhere we will be offering a 5 week intensive Master Study Program in which a few select students will be exposed to the full range of vernacular building from sourcing and milling timbers to executing advanced joinery to finish details. This course is intended for the serious student who wants to fully immerse in timber framing and natural, vernacular building systems.This Master Course is limited to 5 students. This is a unique opportunity to experience the full panoply of exuberant timber framing.
In whatever course level you choose to engage there will be ample time to enjoy the natural environment of Costa Rica's Guanacaste coast. From surfing one of the most consistent surf breaks on the pacific coast only a couple hundred meters from the work site, or enjoying a sunrise yoga session on the beach led by some of the planets best yoga instructors, to an afternoon hike to one of the local waterfalls. What better way to spend the winter of 2016? Fully engaged and fully immersed.
