Natural Plasters and Paints

Join us for four days of hands on experience learning the basics of natural plasters and paints.  There is nothing that compares to the beauty of a naturally finished wall!  We will be taking clay, sand, and straw and turning it into durable, non-toxic, beautiful natural plasters that can be used just as easily in a conventional home (on drywall, etc) or a natural home like straw bale or cob.  

We will cover harvesting and processing materials from your own site, as well as using purchased pottery clays. In this intensive workshop we will also cover lime plaster, as well as natural paints and other finishes such as a clay alis that can be used in creative applications to create the aesthetic you desire in your own project!

Sign up by April 15th for the early bird rate of $350, regular rate is $400

***Three healthful, home cooked meals a day will be provided

***Camping available on site, or rent a tiny sleeping cottage

Contact us with any questions, we look forward to hearing from you!
