About This Event

Finca Morpho is proud to host its fourth natural building course with Rodolfo Saenz and Trey Abernethy.

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 anyone looking to build with regenerative and sustainable materials and methodologies. No prior experience or special skills are necessary. Just a reasonable level of physical fitness and willingness to learn.

The course starts at 9 a.m. Friday, January 3rd. We advise everyone to arrive by 4 p.m. on Thursday the 2nd. Dinner and selected accommodations for the 2nd are included. The course runs 7 full days and the last day is Thursday, January 9th. Breakfast is provided on the morning of the 10th.

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

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