Yurt and Green Wood Construction Workshop

  • Sat, April 13, 2013
  • 10:00 AM - 3:30 PM
  • Forest Heights Community School, Chester Grant
Join us for a great day of learning about yurt design and construction as well as green wood-working techniques. 
 
 Alex Cole of Little Foot Yurts (www.lfy.ca) will lead a yurt workshop where participants will learn how to set up a 17 foot yurt. The group will broaden their understanding of the structure, history, and cultural background of the yurt – a low impact, sustainable shelter. In the afternoon, we will explore green wood-working techniques that are used to create the yurt and do a woodland walk that will introduce local species as a material resource for yurt construction. 
 
Cost is $50.00/person - bring a lunch and dress for outside. 
Register by April 8th by phoning Chester Recreation and Parks at 275-3490, Monday-Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm
