FEBRUARY 5-6-7, 2016 BROCKTON, MA (25 min from Boston, MA)Well, its pretty thrilling that a museum that I hold in high esteem, and one that is gorgeous, has asked us to host a Hands-On Tiny House Building Workshop! Naturally we said YES!
This time around, we have more space than we know what to do with- ALL indoors (don't worry, you won't freeze to death!), and we'll be tackling TWO, if not THREE, tiny cabin and shelter projects- all roping in the know-how you need to build a tiny house, shed, tree house, cabin, or funktified fort!
EVERY workshop we've done since 2010 has sold out, so don't delay. We're limiting this one to 40 or so students- this way everyone will really be able to take part, get their hands dirty, and ACTUALLY BUILD with our multiple projects.
Better yet, one of the cabins we build will also become an art display for their museum in an incredible secluded courtyard right within the building!
AND.... while we're still working on announcing our guest speakers, live demos, and more (don't worry, it'll be awesome!), We DO have the line up for Day One- Friday.
Day 1 (Friday) is the evening kick-off.....
TOUR a tiny house courtesy of Domenic Mangano from THE JAMAICA COTTAGE SHOP!
A film screening of "We The Tiny People"
A book signing with myself for "Microshelters" my brand new book, followed by a QnA
A cocktail hour meet and greet with some of our builders/hosts
LIVE music by Annabel Lee
LIVE painting by Annmarie Sherrick, Carolyn Corrente, and Ellen Rolli!!!!
A Bamboo building/joinery demo with ancient tools by Palo Coleman
And a talk from Tiny House Builder/Dweller Vera Struck (www.silverbullettinyhouse.com)- who built her tiny house at age 65!
And that's JUST the evening of day one..... We'll all head to a local pub for a QnA hang afterwards too.....
THEN DAYS TWO AND THREE.....
BUILDING and design! LOTS! More guest speakers, and more surprises!!!!
We'll post more soon, but people have already asked to sign up, so we figured we'd at least get the preliminary info up, and a sign up link.....
COST- The 3 day workshop taught by multiple hosts and carpenters is $399
The ratio of builders to attendees will be approx. 1:7, which is GREAT!
Refunds- FULL refund up until 6 weeks before the event
Afterwards (after the 6 weeks-prior point), with notice, you'll be given a rain check for a
