Tuesday 18th September 2pm to 5pm
Would you like to learn how to use lime a cheap and eco material in your house renovation? We have been using lime bought from the builders merchants to make paints and plasters and for repointing and repair of stone work.
You’ll be shown how to make a basic lime putty then experiment with this to create plaster and limewash coloured with natural earth colours such as yellow ochre and burnt sienna.These natural colours produce lovely natural soft shades miles away from the lurid paints so many of our neighbors seem to like!
I am running the work shop because I am passionately against the cementification of Italy’s build heritage and hope you’ll be inspired to go away and try lime and other natural and cheap materials
The fees that you pay will be going to LIPU which is the Italian RSPB another one of my passions!
I will be running the work shop at our house which is mid renovation so with limited facilities although there is going to be a tea break with proper English Tea and biscuits never fear.
Numbers are limited to 6 people so if you would like to come along please send me and emailmy email. then you will be sent a map and pay pal invoice for 10 euros which reserves your place.The money will go into my pay pal account and then once the workshop is over everything will be sent via pay pal to LIPU.
