Classes & Workshops
In 2008 Design~Build~Live began fulfilling a long-time goal of offering natural building workshops on a more frequent basis. We are currently hosting one to two workshops or classes per month, and the plan is to expand our offerings each year.
We have dealt with a variety of topics. To read descriptions of our past workshops use the “Categories” drop down menu in the right bar to search for “Workshops”. Some of our recent offerings include:
Working with Juniper Roundwood
Urban Permaculture Design
Upcoming Workshops & Classes
Announcements of our upcoming workshops are described on our Home Page and also appear there on the calendar and “Upcoming Events” listing. If you subscribe to our free e-news (Select “SUBSCRIBE” in the right bar), you will receive email announcements of new workshop and class offerings.
Most of our current offerings are one-day workshops, designed to provide high quality, hands-on instruction that will give the participant the knowledge and confidence to “try this at home”. They occur at real jobsites and are a combination of theory, illustration and actual “work” (also known as “fun”). Typically we provide a healthy vegetarian lunch, beverages, and snacks.
Classes are generally conducted inside in a more typical classroom seating format. While it varies with the topic and instructor, learning is generally more through visual and spoken presentation rather than hands-on action. Questions and dialogue, of course, are always encouraged.
