Traditional Trades & Techniques: Plaster

The last class offering in the New York Landmarks Conservancy’s traditional trades & techniques series will explore the use and versatility of plaster; an amazing material employed in a wide range of settings and applications. This class will explore how plaster is used in architectural spaces – from flat installation to the creation of historic and contemporary ornament. Case studies may include the Ohio Theatre (Cleveland), King Street Station (Seattle) and the Russian Lounge at the Kennedy Center (Washington, DC). Participants will have the opportunity to cast ornament.
