Pictures from classes at the School of Italian Plasters

At the School of Italian Plasters all classes will be taught on 6 foot easels. We teach Venetian Plaster on these easels to give you the feel of a real wall. These sturdy easels can also take the pressure of troweling on heavy base plasters that you could not do on a table top easel. Most Venetian Plaster workshops teach on a flat surface. Which the design you learn to put into the plaster will not look the same on a vertical surface.

We teach people from all backgrounds. From traditional plasterers, housewives, faux finish applicators, people from the IT field, you name it. With the right training and practice anyone can learn how to apply true Venetian Plasters.

All the trowels and tools we use are imported from Italy. You cannot find such tools here in the USA. Even our brushes are Italian that we use for the primers. At least half of the people we train have never used a trowel before. Most of the time this is a good thing because there are no bad habits to break.

The training you will receive here at the School of Italian Plasters can not be matched anywhere in the USA. We take great pride in our ability to teach each person how to produce awesome looking sample boards, which they will use later on to start their own portfolio.

In the beginning we toyed with the idea of teaching a 2 day workshop but decided against this because 2 days is just not enough time to give sufficient training. That is why we decided to produce the DVD's. The information that you will take in in the 5 day class is sometimes overwhelming. But with the DVD's you can watch the entire class over and over again while you work side by side the plaster master. Combine the training with our southern hospitality, and the opportunity to eat real fried green tomatoes! It is no wonder you see so many smiles in the pictures below.
