Clay finish plasters bring the beauty and benefits of natural building to any home, affordably and approachably.
These homemade plasters can be applied on any typical wall surface, including drywall (painted or new) and plasters or masonry of all kinds. The plasters are made from easily obtainable, affordable natural materials and can be mixed and applied at home in a vast range of colours and textures.
Clay plasters add a dimension to a room unobtainable with any other finish. In addition to their inherent beauty, they are completely non-toxic and can help regulate humidity in a room. They are durable and repairable and the best way to make your home a more natural, warmer and healthier place.
In this workshop, you will learn how to source the required materials, prepare wall surfaces for clay plastering, mix and tint plasters and apply to wall surfaces. During the workshop, you will create a series of sample boards in the colours of your choice to take home to help make plaster choices for your own home/project.
Open to beginners and experienced plasterers
