  • Learn how to build a Makuti roof
    Makuti is thatching made from the sun-dried leaves of the coconut palm. It is widely used across East Africa and can withstand sun, rain, wind and other harsh environments. Thatch provides warmth in winter and cool in the summer. It provides insulation equal or better than modern roofing standards. It's an easy technique to learn but an hard one to master. In this workshop we'll learn everything about that, from the identification of the right plant, to the actual roofing. We'll start gathering some leaves from the palms that grow around the camp (and some coconuts for later refreshment) and putting them to dry for future use. Then, using the already dried leaves I store, we'll start weaving the actual tiles. The tiles can be used for everything, roofing, wall covering, shading and so on. After crafting an adeguate number of tiles, we can start with the tatching, we'll climb onto the roof and start covering it with the tiles we made. You'll learn a priceless craft to which you can resort in many occasions: even at home you can make Makuti Tiles and teach others how to do it, you can use them in your garden, on your balcony or terrace, or even in the unlikely event you'll get lost in the forest and need to build your self a survival shelter ;). Comprised in the workshop you'll also get refreshment and a quick training in how to climb palm trees!
