Event Details

In this workshop you will learn the ancient and lovely skills used in earth plastering.

You can use the earth to create amazing walls and finishes - completing your straw bale building or some other project you have dreamed up. We will focus on all aspects of interior and exterior earth plastering, including base coats, scratch coats, and finish coating.
