Fellow Natural Builder, Kat Heitman is currently sharing her love and talent for woodworking with a variety of woodworking classes at The Austin Tinkering School and WOODCRAFT. These classes compliment the goal of a homesteading lifestyle. Woodworking is essential to any homesteader - from spoon carving to German cookie-mold carving. 
With samples of English Mulled Wine and German “Gluhwein" her unique, hands-on classes are to be fun too!
Kat is a bit of a Renaissance woman. As a woodcarver, sculptor, and natural builder, with a degree in Woodcarving and Gilding from City and Guilds of London Art School, she has always had a deep rooted interest in historical art forms - an innate urge to learn old ways of building, making things, processing art materials - and incorporates that in every project. She has led many workshops in cob oven building, aliz painting (clay paint), mud murals, and even wood-fired cooking. 
We hope to host her soon with one of these.
