3-Day Natural Plasters + Paints Workshop

June 1 - June 3

$560 – $630

Join the Mud Dauber School of Natural Building for a course offering hands-on experience mixing and applying a variety of natural finishes.

Plasters and paints are important functionally and aesthetically. They protect your natural wall system from the elements, and also provide an opportunity to add color, texture, and beauty. Plastering can be quite a satisfying experience, both in regards to how it looks, and how it feels to apply. Our students often refer to it as the “icing on the cake!”

Our emphasis will be on clay plaster (base and finish coat, as well as sculpting + relief work). We’ll also be making and applying clay paint, milk paint, and limewash. Additionally, there will be a demo of lime plaster, plus an opportunity to try applying them. We will be working on-site on our demonstration cottages, as well as experimenting on individual sample boards.

In addition to our scheduled learning time, there is a wonderful community aspect to our workshops. Three wholesome meals are provided each day, which are shared as a group in our community gathering space. Plenty of unscheduled, leisure time is available for relaxing.

About the Mud Dauber School of Natural Building:

Our mission is to empower people by teaching them the skills of natural building. We believe in the effectiveness of hands-on learning, and we make that our focus. We also recognize the importance of community, and weave this belief into our workshop format through shared meals, cob oven pizza parties, and emphasizing a team approach on the worksite.

The Mud Dauber School campus shares land with the homestead of the owners Greg & Danielle.  We began running natural building workshops here in 2014, and have co-created with our students a series of natural demonstration cottages, garden walls, and community spaces. With each new season, we continue to work on our campus, building new spaces and finishing old ones.
