ABOUT LYDIA: Lydia Doleman is a natural builder and activist currently practicing in Southern Oregon. She has been building since she first stole her sister’s legos at the age of three. For the last thirteen years, her work has been a culminating point for ecology, art, and social justice. Flying Hammer Productions is her natural building construction company focused on pushing the bounds of affordable and energy-efficient housing, training people and communities in various building skills, and infusing the dreary urban fabric with structures that reflect beauty, sustainability, and community. You can usually find her in the mud, wrestling straw bales, laughing or just flying around by the seat of her pants.
