Many of you have been waiting to see when I will be teaching hands on workshops this coming summer and fall. Well, the wait is over and we’re announcing the 2009 straw bale workshop dates now. I have finally posted the majority of my workshop dates on my website. I still plan on adding 2 or 3 more dates and am still in contact with several potential hosts to make those workshops a reality. In the meantime, I have confirmed dates in 4 different states from coast to coast. I also will be offering a special 3 day workshop focusing entirely on plaster with Natural Hydraulic Lime plaster.
Participants will get hands on experience with all three coats, something impossible to do with most workshops due to the waiting period in between coats. Because I have several structures in several different stages of construction, we will do the scratch, brown and finish coats all in three days! I am really excited about this opportunity to teach a skill that is all but impossible to learn from a book. Hands on is by far the best way to learn, especially when we are talking about plaster.
To sign up for any of my workshops, please visit my website and click on the registration page. Here’s the web address: www.StrawBale.com/store. If your excitement is so high that you can’t wait for a new page to load, then just check out the dates below! 😉 I have included the dates without confirmed hosts as well in case you would like to step up and host a workshop during those dates. Being that the potential hosts are still unconfirmed, the dates are still available.
