Building Deconstruction Workshop at Harvest Moon
August 9-12, 2012
Subsidized registration available – sliding scale
The Harvest Moon Society is bringing in an amazing instructor from Washington state (Dave Bennink) to teach a hands-on building deconstruction workshop at the Harvest Moon Society centre. The idea is to learn advanced building deconstruction techniques that makes demolition (building waste) obsolete.
They will be deconstructing a small house in Clearwater and all of the materials will be store and then used in a building project at the Harvest Moon Learning centre the following year – all are welcome to join them in imagining and building whatever it is they’re collectively inspired to build from the reclaimed materials.
They have funding from the Waste Reduction and Prevention Program (MB Gov) and are offering a few subsidized course fees for those who want to attend but can’t afford. The full price is $600 but there are spots available on a sliding scale of $200, $300 and $400.
