NATURAL PLASTERS & FINISHES
March 26, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$25 – $50
Earthen plasters offer a beautiful and sustainable alternative as a natural finish. We will be using local materials in this class to make and apply both base plasters and finish plasters. You will learn how to create sample boards and what common ingredients and ratios are used for these different types of plasters. Should time remain, we will explore wheat-paste paints and play with pigments. Since studying natural building at Aprovecho, Emily Sessoms has utilized plasters in many of her clients’ projects and where she lives now. She believes in the aesthetic beauty of natural finishes, the meditation that comes through their application, and the wonderful community bonds they can create. Come have fun playing with mud and tapping in to your inner artist!
