Natural Building Intensive

Endeavour’s one-month Natural Building Intensive puts you at the heart of a natural building project.
You will learn about the design and construction of modern natural buildings, using materials sourced from the local environment to create healthy, affordable and energy efficient shelter.
You will work with teachers and practitioners who are leaders in the field and work with fellow participants who are motivated and enthusiastic.
Join us for an experience that will give you the skills to tackle your own natural building projects!

  • timber and wood framing
  • natural plasters
  • earthen floors
