Töötuba “Traditional Estonian Log Building with Hand and Power Tools”

Woodhouse Estonia koos heade partneritega korraldab rahvusvahelise palkehituse konverentsi raames erinevaid temaatilisi töötube ja praktilisi kursuseid. Töötoad toimuvad inglise keeles!

Hans-on workshop about traditional log building using both hand and power tools. Over the five-days log building workshop, you’ll learn traditional Estonian log-building by cutting and raising a traditional smoke sauna (suitsusaun), a small log building that is an iconic form in Estonian vernacular architecture. We are practicing log scribing with hand tools like it was done originally in old days, but we also teach to use power tools with nowadays technique. The workshop is 100% practical – working robe and ability to handle tools is expected.

During the course 3 x 5 m sauna will be built with dove tail joints.

It was decided to add smoke sauna tradition to UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2014. You’ll definitely have a chance to get part of the traditional sauna culture during your stay.

The workshop belongs to the main program of International Log Building Conference bringing log house builders and enthusiast all over the world to South Estonia (Räpina). We warmly recommend to expand your stay to take part of pre-conference tours, meet professionals on the conference venue or see the competition for log house builders.
