Delve into the world of natural plasters with two master craftspeople and teachers. Learn to beautify and protect natural wall systems such as straw bale or cob and also to “naturalize” your conventional home with a fireproof and health-enhancing earthen finish. Clay plasters can be surprisingly durable, beautiful, economical, ecological, and are the easiest material for novice plasterers to develop their application skills.
