Build n’ Burn Your Own Man
Build your own Mini Burning Man and create a community experience of your own.
Throughout Burning Man’s history, a sense of community and shared experiences have been
the hallmark of the event. The very first and the most authentic act was, of course, the gathering
of friends to burn the Man. The best community events provide a chance for artists, musicians,
poets, and dancers to all share their creations, gifts and talents. They also provide a place for folks who participate simply with their presence.
Build-N-Burn your own Burning Man downloadable plans and directions
Working with the Man Build Crew we have created a set of pdf formatted printable plans that
have sections of the Man such as arms, torso and head, and can be cut out and pasted to
plywood. The plywood with the patterns attached could then be cut out with simple tools and
assembled to form a Burning Man figure and Man Base complete with arms that can be raised.
Build your own classic Burning Man or change and modify it to make it your own.
The experience is yours!
IMPORTANT: Is it permissible to have a fire where you are?
As seasonal wildfires burn in California and other places we want to acknowledge the Burning of anything might not be permitted or considerate to others. There are some areas where having a fire outside is simply not ok for any reason during the summer months. The risk of wildfire is real, and the results of your actions could be catastrophic. Local fire regulations must be checked to make sure your fire will not conflict with “No Burn” or “Spare the Air” days in your area. While you may have a certain comfort around fire, you do not want to cause concern in your neighborhood or receive an unexpected visit from the fire department. Consider checking in with your neighbors so they are aware of your plans and you can address any concerns ahead of time. Enjoy a safe Burn!
