Weather-Resistant Exterior PLASTERS with Clay and Lime in Phoenix

This 3-day course replaces a previously arranged straw bale building workshop scheduled for this same time that has been moved to a future date. 

Taught by Athena and Bill Steen, this workshop will focus on stabilizing clay plasters for use as an exterior finish. We will explore a variety of ingredients that can be added or applied to help clay resist water. Lime plaster will also be covered to a lesser extent. The course will cover theory and mixes with plenty of hands-on opportunities for all participants. 

Existing exterior strawbale walls plastered with a clay base-coat will be finish plastered during the course. Different methods and techniques will be used on various walls around the two existing buildings.
