Come study the art and practice of natural finishes. Learn how to utilize breathable, low impact, non-toxic materials to make protective, beautiful and durable finishes.

In this in-depth hands-on workshop you will be applying earthen plaster to the interior and exterior of a Tiny Home, the Cedar Nest, at Wilson Creek Gardens.

The Project
The Cedar Nest is an on going project that started in 2013 utilizing 95% repurposed materials from a 1920’s home and from the land at WCG. The structure is designed to demonstrate simple construction techniques in a small footprint, 11’x16’. It was in-filled with a straw clay slip last year and now is ready for the walls to receive the final plaster layer.
We will be utilizing mostly on-site materials.

What You Will Learn:
• Sourcing and processing materials for making your own healthy, low cost finishes!
• Proper methods for natural ingredients when preparing and applying clay based plaster.
• Practice making and applying other types of finishes which can be applied to other surfaces such as; cement, bricks, drywall and latex paint.
• The many advantages of constructing a tiny home with ecologically friendly building techniques.

Class cost:
$320.00 Includes: meals and camping: $20.00 Early bird discount (if register by 6/24)
