Traditional Estonian log-building with hand tools
The Tutor, Margus Palolill, is carpenter and teacher of Estonian traditional log-building. Born and raised in Southeast Estonia where heritage buildings are still amply present, he started with carpentry at the age of 20, first taking interest in shingle roofs and later in various traditional building styles – log-house, timberframe and earth building.
Training site: The course will be held in the Vanaajamaja Training Center for Traditional Building. It is located in the small village of Mooste, in southern Estonia. The Center is a renovated old grain dryer surrounded by 16th-century Mooste Manor. The Training Center consists of a broad workshop with enormous two-story heritage protected kiln oven, a small kitchenette for coffee breaks and a Finish sauna with showers and wardrobes.
Accommodations are at the Mooste guesthouse, which is a restored building in the historic manor complex. All meals will be provided, with an emphasis on local, home-cooked Estonian food.
Cost 675 euros includes everything in-country: transport, tuition, accommodation, meals, organized field-trips. Participants are responsible for their own international transport, travel insurance, and extra-curricular costs. Space is limited to 12 participants; please register early.
