Virtual Workshop (Recording) – Carpentry & Materials


With the recent surge in popularity of hand-crafted campervans, New Zealanders are coming to us as a source of inspiration and information so we’ve been running a series of virtual workshops to give aspiring van owners the confidence to make their dream a reality.

This workshop is all about carpentry and materials. We’ll cover:

  • Various types of timber… engineered, solid and reclaimed and how they are commonly used
  • Other useful materials like carpet, vinyl and ACM
  • The essential tools you’ll need (and the toys you might want to buy!)
  • Carpentry joints and fixings for form and function
  • Bringing it all together to create things like kitchen cabinets, a bed or a shower room!

You’ll receive access to the video recording, slides and links to any resources mentioned.



You are getting access to the 90 minute video recording of this workshop as well the presentation slides.
