The Clever people at the Sherwood have been promoting their workshops for a wee while now. Previously we’ve had The Real Crust with The People’s Bread and now I’m heading to their ‘Living Big in a Tiny House’ with Bryce Langston.
I’ve been fascinated with this, I guess, buzz word for sometime. I recently moved into a smaller house (60sqm) and am loving the fact that I a) don’t have to clean somewhere huge b) I got rid of lots of stuff and 3) it’s epic to heat. So I’m heading to the workshop to see what other tips I can pick up.
Bryce is known for his work on Shortland Street but also his epic show of the same name. He has such a passion for small spaces and particularly living off the grid, which I’m still learning about. I want to know how I can get better, more efficient, more structured in the buying of things for my house. So this workshop will answer all of those questions and more.
The Sherwood’s workshop ‘Living Big in a Tiny House’ will start at 10am with the question “how can the principles of permaculture be applied to the structure of society and economy?” and will run through until 3.30pm. A communal lunch in their gorgeous restaurant is included. There is also their lovely mountain bike track to shoot yourself down, their wonderful veggie patch to get ideas from and of course there is also the opportunity to stay the night in their lovely hotel. You can read about it here.
You know when you want to do something but just aren’t sure where or how to start? Well this is the marvellous opportunity to do just that. Finding out about how I can be better equipped to live in my small house, new and interesting ways of growing food in a small space and make it look lovely all wrapped up in the gorgeous Sherwood surroundings.
