Earthen OVEN & Cob Building WORKSHOP July 17 – August 17, 2024
@ Lost Valley Educational Center in Dexter, Oregon

Bryan Burnoski has been teaching and leading natural building workshops for over 17 years.  He has built over 16 earthen structures through the workshops he’s taught. Using just clay, sand, and straw as the raw materials for building, allows for participants in a workshop to get involved, no matter, age, ability, or skill level.  Natural buildings breathe, are natural, free from toxic chemicals and compounds, are DIY friendly, and can be quite inexpensive. Bryan enjoys teaching people natural building so that they can learn the skills our ancestors learned over centuries. Natural building is an age-old technique that still works very well in today’s world.  “It’s more like remembering how to build than anything else, and once people get the hang of it it’s really quite intuitive and fun”
