Join prominent natural builders and artists Athena, Bill and Benito Steen and the Ranch crew for an unforgettable and unprecedented collaboration of 2 weeks of earthen building, plasters and artistry at our wonderful facilities on the edge of the rainforest.  We will cover wall systems, clay and lime plasters, earthen floors, sculpting and more during this unique, comprehensive and life-changing course.  

Rancho Mastatal has been hosting transformational natural building workshops since 2002.  The Ranch has become a regional leader in the realm of natural building with focuses on earth (wall systems, plasters, floors, and finishes), bamboo, and timber frame construction.  Our campus has numerous examples of relevant building styles in our climate and has become a model for those interested in building in the tropics and beyond.  We hope that you’ll consider joining us for this incredible opportunity to learn from the Steen’s and our competent team of natural builders.


The course will start on the morning of Tuesday, April 11.  Students are encouraged to arrive on April 10.  Lodging the night of April 10 is included in the cost of the class.  


The course will end at around 5 p.m. on April 22.  Most students will depart on the morning of April 23.  Lodging the night of April 22 is included in the cost of the class.  


Price includes all food (except Sunday dinner when we close our kitchen to support the local restaurant), lodging and instruction.  

Early Bird (before January 1):  $1,200

After January 1:  $1,400

A $250 deposit will secure your spot in the course.  You can make your deposit with PayPal below or go to our Payment page for more information and options.
I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
