PLASTER PARTY!

The goal of this event is to give you a taste of one of the learning components we teach at our Mojave Center - natural plasters! We have a lot of domes that need plastering and joining our plaster party is a great way to get involved in our community as well as getting your hands dirty to learn some plastering techniques.
