We offer two types of yurt building workshops.  Our goal is to meet your needs and help you be involved in building your own yurt.

Workshop 1: Help Build Your Yurt! You pay the cost of the yurt, learn the steps of building the yurt, and work for 3 weekends on building yurt parts, set up a yurt, and when the building school is over you can take home your yurt or have it shipped to your home.

Workshop 2: Learn to Build Your Yurt Purchase book and use it as a tool during workshop as you learn to make all the different yurt parts, including the rafters, khana, door frame,  You will assemble an entire yurt, put together khana, grommet a canvas, and put the yurt up .  You will go home with a sample rafter, khana piece, a roof ring, and a canvas.
