A.         Adobe Building Weeks

Weeks 5-6, 8-11, 13, 15-17, 20


Workshops run weekly beginning each Friday & ending the following Friday.

Links to more info in Sidebar 


 Oh what incredible fun—come and build cabins with a wondrous group of other women.  Put your hands to the wood and clay and learn by doing.  If you cannot come for the entire week, we invite you to attend our wondrous range of Workshop Weekend Explorations.

 Adobe Building Workshops and some Weekend Workshops are facilitated by Jae Haggard who has built houses or other buildings for women in a range of designs in several states since 1974.  Several talented women are facilitating the various Weekend Workshop Explorations on Healing, Creativity or Construction.  Deliciously full weeks

 Included in each Outlandish Adobe week is a review of a range of basic construction principles, safety and tool use to make sure you understand the scope no matter when you attend.   YOU CAN Build a House!

 We figure about 4 hours of a spectrum of hands-on construction experience & instruction 4 days per week, usually Monday-Thursday.  That leaves lots of opportunity for other activities, connecting and the Weekend Workshops.  We plan to build at least 3 adobe cabins in staggered stages of construction so we all can experience most construction phases during whichever weeks we attend.   Learn by Doing

 Naturally, the basic rhythm of each day includes great meals, relaxation, hot tubs, hikes, singing, games, conversation & more.   A Wonderful Spectrum of Activities & Alone Time

To expand your week, each weekend we offer a different  Weekend Workshop Exploration theme. You can choose you Workshop Week according to what Weekend Explorations tickle you most. 

 Or, you are also invited to come just Friday to Sunday to enjoy the Weekend Exploration, great food, fun activities & wonderful women.


We consider this full-spectrum blend key to the ideal Workshop experience.

 Learning, Connection, Personal Growth, Creativity, Wholeness/Healing
