Building with Bamboo
3-4 Nov 2018, Hobart, Tasmania
Learn about different bamboo, how you can use it and get your hands dirty by splitting, drilling and cutting in this 1 day introductory course. 

Hands-on learning workshops

We conduct a variety of hands-on learning workshops using bamboo and other natural materials. The aim of the workshops is to provide a theoretical and practical understanding of working with bamboo. The workshops also provide creative challenges and enables participants to test the design ideas through hands-on construction. The workshops range from 1 day to 1 week depending on the project and participants. 

We are able to tailor the workshops specific to your needs. If you require any further information or would like to organise a workshop please contact us by email.
