Tadelakt is a natural plaster method that originates in Morocco and is the only type of natural plaster that is inherently waterproof, making it ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, showers, tubs and sinks. It is a beautiful plaster with an unequalled shiny finish and variegated colouring that is pleasing to the eye and to the touch.

This one-day introduction to tadelakt plastering will help beginners understand the materials and the techniques for making and applying tadelakt plaster. The workshop will show you how to source the materials required to make your own tadelakt mix, and how to make the mix and tint it.

The secret to tadelakt plastering is in the application. Applying tadelakt is a multi-stage process that requires patience and understanding of the material. Working on a small scale, this workshop will introduce you to the tadelakt process and give you the chance to take a small tadelakt project from start to shining finish.

Instructor Mike Henry is a natural builder, freelance writer and educator, and author of Ontario’s Old-Growth Forests. Since 2000, he has been a natural builder and plasterer with Camel’s Back Construction.
