Advanced Lime Finishes 2-day course

For those with some prior experience of plastering, or of using lime.

Tailored to participants’ needs; bring your project along as a case study and you can learn which plaster finish is appropriate for your situation, & how to achieve it.

The first day will be mostly theory and demonstrations, with hands on sessions of a basic trowelled finish, and will cover:

Choosing an appropriate plaster finish for the situation - how the wall surface functions.

Creating your own materials/ choosing between ready-made plaster mixes
Interior plaster & exterior render finishes.

Suitable further coatings ie lime wash, eco paints, when they can be applied, immediate tending requirements & future maintenance.
