Yurt Building: Design and Construction

Course Overview

Whether you’re looking for a spare bedroom, office, studio, tent, sauna, summer cabin, or just looking to reduce your footprint, the yurt may be the answer. Yurts are ancient, portable shelters and one of the classic inventions of human history: simple, efficient, easy to heat, sturdy, and beautiful inside and out. In this course, students will work together to build a 14' diameter yurt, and will cover the basic principles of yurt design and construction. This includes constructing the wooden framework and stitching the fabric cover, building the rafter ring, windows, and door options. When completed, students will have the experience and skills necessary to construct a yurt of their own. The team of instructors and small class size ensures that each student will get hands-on experience with all parts of the process. Once built, the yurt will be for sale to interested students at a set price (a raffle will take place on the final day if multiple students are interested).
