Categories: Education, DIY

Yestermorrow Design/Build School teaches over 100 hands-on workshops a year in design, construction, woodworking, and architectural craft and offers a variety of courses concentrating in sustainable design. Their intensive, hands-on courses are taught by top architects, builders, and craftspeople from across the country. For people of all ages and experience levels, from novice to professional.

In hands-on classes that explore and engage, we teach the arts of design and building as an integrated process, and provide instruction in fundamental skills. They offer nearly 100 classes in sustainable building and design, construction, natural building, architectural craft, woodworking, working landscapes and ecosystems, energy efficiency, and building science.

Their curriculum allows students to learn, think, and practice at varying scales: in the context of whole buildings, communities, and ecosystems; on the specific materials, methods, and technologies that enable systems to function well; and on the fine details that make structures functional and beautiful.

The students who come to Yestermorrow are place-makers or change-makers, and sometimes they’re both. They are DIYers and professionals, women and men, undergraduates and lifelong learners, hobbyists, and those seeking a career or life change. Courses are taught by top architects, builders, craftspeople, and permaculture practitioners from around the country.

Uniting thinking and making, and exploring relationships between the natural and built environments, Yestermorrow empowers students to create intentional and inspired pieces, places, buildings, and communities that enrich life and enhance our world.

Yestermorrow Design/Build School inspires people to create a better, more sustainable world by providing hands-on education that integrates design and craft as a creative, interactive process.
