Workshops & Events
I attended expos and fairs so people can see and touch my yurts and get to see the build quality. Shows planned for this year are below. I am limited to the west coast due to travel restraints, but will at shows up and down the West Coast From LA to Seattle.

My yurt building workshops are a great way to gain the knowledge and experience to make your own.  Not only will you learn some new practical skills, but also have a good time too.
The workshop is hands-on and you will be taken through every stage of making a camping yurt. You will go away with enough knowledge and a free set of instructions on how to make your own.
