DESCRIPTION

Learn the art of square rule timber framing with the Rancho Mastatal team in this 6 day intensive workshop.

During the workshop we will be building a portion of our new bunkhouse. All the joinery and techniques that would be used to build any size building.

Through classroom and practical sessions participants will gain skills to build a structure utilizing the square rule method of timber framing which results in mortise and tenon joinery secured by handmade wooden pegs instead of nails.

On site students can learn from and get inspired by a multitude of naturally built structures that have been constructed at the Ranch and in the small rural community of Mastatal since 2001 including 12 separate timber frame structures.

Students will stay at the Ranch’s amazing facilities and in addition to learning about timber framing will be exposed to a host of other sustainable living projects including a methane digester, composting toilets, permaculture designed gardens and orchards, fermented food products and much more.  It promises to a fun-filled, productive and instructional course for everyone involved.
