Event Details

Become familiar with bamboo construction techniques, principles of construction, opportunities and constraints of bamboo as a building material and participate in artisan bamboo craft workshops.

The Workshop venue is located in our bamboo factory where artisan craftsmen and bamboo preservation techniques can be observed, with additional site visits to view completed projects and visits to local bamboo furniture and craft studios.

The workshop content can easily be tailored to your individual technical requirements, whether you have a project in mind, or simply wish to learn the general principles when building with this fascinating construction material.
