Natural Plaster Intensive
April 8th, 10AM-3PM, $65($120 for 2 people)
During this 2 day workshop we will explore the art of natural finishes, including materials prep, mixing, troweling, sculpting and design. In this hands on class you will mix and apply a finish coat, and an alis to an earthen (cob) oven, and create designs with sculpting plaster.
Class registration includes a PIZZA PARTY afterwards, with the completed oven, at 3:30pm.
Discover the healing effects of building with earth, and turn mud into GOLD! Come and join the FUN!
Plasters taught by Carolyn Marie Hernandez and Jeska Summerfield of Wild Earth Builders.
What to bring:
We will be working outdoors. Wear something that can get dirty, and dress in layers. Unless you plan to mix cob with your bare feet (very popular!) wear some really old sneakers.
You will also want to bring water, a lunch, and nitrile gardening gloves.
