VENETIAN PLASTER TRAINING COURSEVenetian Plaster Course

▶︎ The Foundations of Marmorino, Grassello and Tadelakt

Our Venetian Plaster Basic Class is a deep dive into understanding and perfecting the application cycle of Tadelakt and of Marmorino. All the grain-sizes of Marmorino are addressed: from the extra-fine Grassello and Marmorino Fine to the more matt Medium and Coarse Marmorino. Participants will thoroughly practice every step of the process, from analysing the substrate to selecting the appropriate primer, mastering the trowel application techniques, and finally, applying the most suitable protective treatment for every type of project. Practice will be on vertical boards and on small wall areas to ensure a comprehensive learning experience.

This Basic Venetian Plaster course is addressed to all levels. Beginners will find the course particularly beneficial as it starts with the basics of Venetian plaster application. However, even experienced artisans will find value in this class, correcting common mistakes, and learning the subtle intricacies from master craftsmen with over 40 years of experience in the field. Our instructors are bearers of an authentic tradition, ready to pass on their rich legacy to every participant.
