Natural Clay Plaster Workshops

A lot of homes need to be repaired in Cleveland. This can be costly often leaving home owners no other option than to use cheaper building products. Cheaper building products are often very toxic, have poor quality, and are carbon intense.

Clay plaster is a great alternative to harmful conventional wall finishes. The materials used to create clay plaster—clay, sand, straw—are abundant within our region, inexpensive, and absolutely non toxic. Often you can source the clay in your own yard!

Through free workshops, I will teach folks how to source, create, and apply clay plasters in their homes. We will work in buildings in need of repair throughout Cuyahoga County—educating the community and repairing homes at the same time.
