Special Applicator Course in Vancouver, Canada

Special Applicator Course in Vancouver, Canada

Later this month we will be traveling north to teach a special 2-day class in Vancouver. Our friends at Greenworks Building and Supply will be hosting this class on the 26th and 27th of April, 2013. Students will get to work hands-on with our Venetian plasters as they learn proper application methods and techniques. This a really great deal that even includes in-store credit for materials to work on your own projects after the course. 

Anyone with an interest in working with decorative finishes, whether you are a contractor or do-it-yourselfer, will want to take advantage of this opportunity. We don’t always go to Vancouver, but when we do, you can bet we have some fun with plaster.

We are really looking forward to working with you Canadian plaster pros, so get signed up quickly while there is still room. Since pre-registration is necessary, you will want to visit this page to enroll and get all the details about the course.

Video: Tadelakt Installation in Canada

Thanks to Steve Manby of Authentic Plaster Effects and Alltex Stucco for submitting video of his crew doing an impressive Tadelakt installation in the Vancouver, BC area.  Watch how they create a very natural distressed finish by starting with a strong vertical pattern and gradually backfilling into the pattern.  Looks very realistic and organic.

Work was done on about 50 columns total on this impressive home which also features a naturally green, lime based Intonachino application on the exterior.
