Natural Plasters are unrivaled in beauty when applied correctly, but there is more to it than looks. More and more studies are published on the beneficial properties of these plasters of the old world, and how to wisely incorporate them into modern day construction whatever the style.
Synthetic finishes have only been in use a fraction of the time that natural finishes have been used, but long enough that a new generation of architects and builders are more or less unaware of the benefits of natural plaster, natural paint and other natural finishes. To us the shift back towards the traditional ways is inevitable, and the momentum is is being supported by a growing number of people.
As a part of the shift in the building industry towards awareness of how we as humans are affected by the materials used on and in our houses, Hansen Handcrafted Finishes is seeing it as our responsibility to educate around the non toxic alternatives to the more commonly used finishes in todays construction.
We offer classes, seminars, workshops and presentations for architects, designers, builders and everybody else with curiosity for something better, and encourage you to contact us with information about what you are interested in learning about and where you live. We teach and educate in and out of state and country.
