Working with local and various colored clays, prickly pear pad mucilage and other vegetal binders, sand and fiber; we'll explore, hands-on (and view examples of), properties of interior and exterior plasters, durability and water resistance. Our primary plastering site will be a "cobination" horno (wood-fired oven), banco and outdoor seating area at Bean Tree Lodge. During the native foods feasting, we will focus us on additional edible offerings of soils, cactus, rainwater, and how delicious watershed stewardship and community food security can be! Jill Lorenzini and Barbara Rose will be your guides.A resource list and feast menu will be emailed after the workshop.
