Join us to learn how to design a bamboo building... Working with master-builders from Bali, you will learn basic design principles of bamboo and come up with a concept design of your own. After some light local snacks and traditional jamu (herbal drink from tumeric) we will talk about bamboo design and general principles for working with bamboo. Next we will demonstrate how to split bamboo and make a bamboo model... getting an idea of the type of design that interests you, we will make suggestions for how to use bamboo to make your concept-idea and together we will make your design and answer your questions about bamboo-building. Learn the best design techniques from bamboo builders themselves in the traditional village of Belega, 20-30min from Ubud. Share time with local families and experience the local culture of Bali and learn about why it's important to make bamboo design and construction affordable and accessible to 70% of the world's population who live on under $10/day.

Thank you Natalie for taking me into your bamboo world for a day! YouÍre a beautiful soul and admire what you have done for your daughter and the local community! I loved the hands-on experience you gave us with bamboo and the opportunity to build a real piece of furniture with local bamboo craftsmen. The bamboo home you built and host the workshop in, is a true testament of your commitment to sustainable use of bamboo.

This was one of a kind experience for me and my two children aged 11 and 8 years old. They had hands on experience with local Indonesians and Natalie on how to use bamboo in building housing but also objects such us forks, bowls, cups. We had lots of fun.

Had a great time talking about Natalie's bamboo home. I was very curious about how it was built and how to work with the bamboo. Natalie was so informative and she shared the process of how she built her bamboo home from an empty land. Even though I had to leave earlier for personal matter, I had a great time during event. Thank you!
