Basic course information:

How is the course structured?

  • Expect theory classes in our lovely Kula Mandira Classroom and plenty of hands-on experience to learn the art of cobbing, building something beautiful from whatever you can find lying around.
  • Glenn is the King of Cob, making everything he builds a sustainable piece of art.
  • You will spend 5 hours per day working on various small projects, according to the needs of the small eco-village at Danyadara, to improve, beautify and add extensions, with the goal of learning the creative flexibility of building with cob, working with old bottles and tree branches, gaining the confidence to dream, design, recycle and build.
    Glenn is not only inspiring and fun to work with, but he will give you the self-confidence to go forth and build!

The curse includes:

  • 21 nights accommodation.
  • Gourmet Organic vegetarian meals, tea, coffee and fruit.
  • Yoga classes.
  • Tuition fees and teaching materials.
  • Use of all facilities including the salt water pool, sauna (on assigned days) and wi-fi.

Three organic vegetarian meals will be provided to you every day. You will have access to a saltwater swimming pool and sauna.

Teacher:

Glenn Dunne

Glenn Dunne is from Dublin. He worked in construction for a number of years in the USA and  Australia. During these years of traveling and working Glenn learned everything about building a house, including plumbing, bricklaying, welding, carpentry, and painting and decorating. On his return to Ireland he began a career as a landscape designer and builder. He worked as a foreman for a large building company for many years until he began to feel concerned and sad about the waste being created in his day to day work. It no longer made sense to him to work in this unsustainable way.

 

In 2014 Glenn started a new business called Eco-bloom Gardens, offering a service in creating beautiful conscious outdoor spaces. He began to take courses in cob building and plastering and helped to build an earthship in Patagonia Argentina. Armed with this knowledge, coupled with his years of conventional building experience and a lot of trial and error, using all sorts of “waste materials ” he has been creating sustainable spaces in an organic and creative flow. It is important to Glenn to respect and be in service to beautiful mother earth.
