The benefits of earthen plaster are many: non-toxic, locally sourced, breathable, durable and beautiful! It can be applied to sheetrock or other alternative building material. This class has the perfect balance of information and hands-on trowel-to-wall time. Participants will learn the secrets of creating a “perfect” batch and applying the finish coat of fine clay plaster to the interior of a light straw-clay building.  We will discuss and practice using a variety of sand, clays, pigments, and finishes to gain exposure to various techniques, each good for different purposes. This class gives you the experience and confidence to apply clay plasters in the home, office, outbuilding and more.
