Hi everyone. First of all i would like to start to apologize for the mistakes, my English is not the best, so, be patient...! :) :)



I would like to know what do you think about a Japanese wood joinery workshop with real Japanese carpenters!!?

Do you think it would be worthy it, either as a professional or as personal individuals?


What would be a reasonable/fair price for it?, for a workshop of a wood frame house construction, in the traditional Japanese carpentry method? 

There would be workshops available for the several stages, and as well for the entire construction. It would also include the 2 principal meals (lunch and dinner) and accommodation (in dormitories or tends). Regardless of the time of stay, the participants would also have access to a dvd with the building process, or, be able to follow the building process in real time by an ip address.



Thank you for any help you may give..!!! ;) ;)

I'm sure you could find interested people to take that course.
Much of the Japanese Joinery is similar to Timber Framing, the interlocking joinery is where the huge differences come in, along with how they fit round timbers to stone footings.
I'd probably be fine with paying up to a thousand dollars for a 2 week long course if I was going to go back into the trade or even if I was just able to do it.
