2022 woodworking masterclass in Île-de-France

From January 2022, a wooden school building will be built in the forest on the outskirts of Paris. This is a real construction project using local materials (wood, soil, stone).

For those who want to become an apprentice in Japan, we have prepared a class to share the whole process.
This is your chance to learn about Japanese wooden architecture.
I would like you to take the acquired Japanese woodworking techniques back to your own country and take them over.
