Workshops at Earthwood:  July and September 2017

Registration for our 5-day July 10-14 Cordwood Workweek is closed, as it is fully booked.  But students can get the same essential information in September by booking both the 3-day Cordwood Masonry Workshop (September 1 – 3) and the Earthwood Techniques Workshop (September 4, Labor Day.) The main difference is: (A) a half-day less hands-on experience and (B) there is not time in the 4 days for the Mushwood Cottage tour. As I write today, June 13, Stoneview, La Casita and the Strawbale Cabin are all booked for September.  The Hermit’s Hut is still available for a single person, and we have space for a single person in a Bed and Breakfast room in the house. There is space for one camping tent and one fully-contained camper. (No electric and toilet available for the camper.)
