We offer a variety of Courses, Workshops and Playshops (less formal and more fun than workshops). We keep the information fun, easy to understand and at a grass roots level (so that once the fundamentals are understood and mastered, the rest follows easily).
We also use local, easy to get, recycled or cheap materials making it accessible for people on small budgets to find simpler solutions and alternatives to daily lifestyle, construction and living challenges.
We offer Basic “Beginners” Playshops for those wanting basic knowledge to supplement their existing skills and more Advanced Intensive Courses for those looking to take their mastery of sustainability and self reliance to new levels.
