LEARN HANDS-ON HOW TO FINISH WALLS
WITH NATURAL MATERIALS!
In this informative course you will learn how to source, prepare and apply natural ingredients to make many beautiful finishes. These techniques can be applied to a variety of surfaces including cob and straw-bale buildings, cement, brick, wood, even drywall and latex paint! Homeowners, interior decorators and artists enjoy being able to make and apply these healthy finishes successfully to both interior and exterior walls.
You will make and go home with sample boards and a booklet with recipes of all the techniques. We will also be applying a durable clay paint onto a room of interior walls which are made of drywall and currently coated with conventional latex paint.
