Natural Plastering Workshop (Sat. - Sun.)

Sat May 27 to Sun May 28, 2017, Peterborough, ON

Art of Tadelakt Plaster Workshop

Tadelakt is a natural plaster method that originates in Morocco. Tadelakt is the only type of natural plaster that is inherently waterproof, making it ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, showers, tubs and sinks. It is a beautiful plaster with an unequalled shiny finish and variegated colouring that is pleasing to the eye and to the touch. The Art of Tadelakt Plastering teaches you how to create this amazing finish for your own home.

This two-day immersion in tadelakt plastering will help beginners understand the materials and the techniques for making and applying tadelakt plaster. The workshop will show you how to source the materials required to make your own tadelakt mix, and how to make the mix and tint it.

The secret to tadelakt plastering is in the application. Applying tadelakt is a multi-stage process that requires patience and understanding of the material. On a real-world project, this workshop will introduce you to the tadelakt process and give you the chance to take a tadelakt project from start to shining finish.
