Workshops

Come spend time with us in an inspiring and lush environment, enjoy getting your hands dirty and learning new skills.
There is choice of 3 different workshops at ASALANTA’s Education Park, all of which are rooted in Sustainability and offer a solid introduction to the topic. Our curriculum is suitable for young and old, which makes the workshops interesting and fun for both children and grownups.

With Natural Building you'll have a muddy good time discovering how and with what you can actually build a house yourself. Sustainable bamboo will have you amazed about the versatility of this plant, amused with its easy applicability and make you feel like a true craftsman. Creative recycling is a good wake up call but most of all a great motivator to get resourceful and see how easy you can make a difference. Highly recommended for families or school groups.

Each workshop starts with a welcome, some fresh fruit and a talk on the topic, we discuss what, why and where. We will then have a walk around and look at the examples we have in practice at ASALANTA, followed by a Thai style lunch at the earthen community home. After lunch we handle the “how” of the topic and that's where the action is, you’ll gain some good hands-on experience so back home you will know exactly what to do. Below you can read in more detail what each workshop has to offer you or your group.

Natural building will teach you about its advantages and possibilities, about different climates and techniques as well as materials and resources.
Sustainable bamboo will teach you about the plant itself, from seed to culm, about how to treat it for more durability, about all its uses and why it is such a sustainable crop. You will get to know the texture and learn how to work with it.
Creative recycling will remind you of how important it is we do it and show you many fun ways of getting into it yourself. Take a closer look at separating, composting, cash for trash and upcycling. We show you what a ripple effect your own actions can have so you may feel powerful not powerless!

Workshops run on request. We need a minimum of 2 people to run the class. The first people who book the workshop decide the topic and if others are interested in joining there could be a maximum of 8 participants. We keep groups small in order to maximize learning, yet if it concerns your private group or class the number of participants may be higher and we can tailor an activity to your needs.

Workshops start at 10 am and finish at 2 pm.

The price is 1500 baht pp.
Children until 12 years half price.
