During this two-day workshop you will learn the foundational philosophy of Oregon-Cob* so that you can use it as a launching pad for your own process of self-discovery and design.
You will engage in value-mining exercises so that you will gain clarity on what kind of home you want to create for yourself. You will then have the opportunity to draft your home and/or build a model of it to take home, if you like! The workshop will conclude with an exploration of how to incorporate these concepts into your current home now.
