Hands on organic YURT-Building Workshop

For courses see the dates at button "Kurse" (german version)

Learn in six days to build a modern permanent/movable YURT*

  • for comfortably all-seasonal living in;
  • low cost and easy to constuct;
  • designet especially to suit wet and warm or cold climates;
  • lightweight/movable construction eg using bamboo, sticks or (normally) timber, affordable bio-insulation and canvas)
  • for permanent dwellings, organic materials such as polls, straw or preferably reed plates and clay may be used. Cost of this form of construction could be as low as Euro 30,-- per m2, but normaly the cost of the materials is approximatly 130 Euro per m2).

    In nine days we will go through the construction including all needed elements: the different kinds of floor, wall and roof, door, windows and skylight, yurt extensions like a vestibule, kitchen and bathroom. It is our intention to create dwellings using as many natural materials as possible and promoting a lifestyle independent from the "system".
    Particularly we work on the reed-yurt, which is the easiest way to learn.
