This is a thorough and highly practical introduction to the world of beginners carpentry. Learn resourceful and ecologically-centered construction through fun building techniques and get some more tools under your belt for resilience and self-sufficiency.

Carpentry techniques and concepts covered:

  • Using traditional hand tools and power tools
  • Designing and planning your project
  • Selecting timbers
  • Introduction to joinery techniques
  • Types of fastenings and their applications
  • Safe workshop practice
  • Pathways to further training in Carpentry

We will cover the basics of sustainable building practice in a fun and relaxed environment, and a special invitation goes out to those who may have encountered obstacles to conventional trade-based training.

Develop a confidence in building that you can apply to any backyard sustainability project or incorporate into permaculture design systems. Or take the first steps towards a career in eco-construction or landscaping.
