What you'll do

Make your own creations and discover Agave (Pita) wood, a material so easy to work with, that it allows the participation of almost all ages.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THIS EXPERIENCE ?
In this workshop you will create your own musical instruments and handicrafts hand-made from agave wood, a true 100% sustainable material obtained from the Almerian desert. You will get the opportunity to learn about different varieties of this special material, its properties and possible uses.
The professional artisan and agave wood specialist Tim Bernhardt will give you an introduction to the various tools, manufacturing methods and natural surface treatments that he uses in his unique craft. Due to a careful selection of raw materials, your creations will be characterized by excellent quality in unique pieces, sanded by hand and finished off with a natural oil treatment. The exclusive use of non-toxic and moisture resistant wood-glue will be as essential for us as well as the use of 100% solar energy for all our machines.
IS ANY PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE NECESSARY ?
To join our workshops, previous knowledge in woodwork is not needed, which enables the participation for almost all ages. However, what we do welcome is an active desire to grow, learn, share and explore.

Meet your host, Tim

Host on Airbnb since 2019
  • Identity verified
I am a German professional craftsman, multi-instrumentalist, innovator and manufacturer of musical instruments. I have been studying the Agave plant for more than 25 years, thus being a pioneer in the specialization of the integral use of its wood, a 100% sustainable resource in arid areas.
 Discovering Agave wood as a material with a durability comparable to oak, it could be described as a mixture of bamboo and balsa wood. Since the beginning of my work in 1993, I have collaborated with multiple teachers from different cultures, thus acquiring extensive knowledge.
 The hole process of making my products is entirely done by myself and full on sustainable, from using 100% solar energy for all my machines to finishing with a homemade blend of natural oils.
