£20.00 per person for two day course, price includes lunch and all materials for both days

Join local craftsmen Tom Philipson and Simon Athersmith as they teach you how to create adaptable and experimental construction designs using materials from a local woodland and sawmill. Over this two-day course, you’ll learn a range of simple timber jointing systems and variety of minimal intervention construction techniques as you build a temporary adjustable pavilion on the Ruskin Museum’s Meadow. On the second day, to create the pavilion’s roof structure, you’ll learn the art of Japanese Shou Sugi Ban, a traditional technique of weatherproofing wood by charring it with fire.
