Course on polished plasters -
Venetian Plaster, Marmorino, Grassello and other special finishes from the Italian tradition.
Teacher: Carlo V. Mori.
5 days workshop (20 hours total) will provide a sufficient training to start making beautiful walls.
During the lesson students will be taught how to handle the tools of this craft (trowels and special 'knife-spatulas'), chromatic variations, wax and emulsion finishes. The gestures of the procedures, called 'calligraphies', are also part of the basic teaching of a creative application of the lime and plaster textures. We will be using Safra products, a high quality brand of lime based materials and other wall paint products.
