Plaster Workshop & Party Schedule in Higashikawa, Hokkaido

For both the exterior and interior plastering of the walls, there will be 3 coats. The first coat is called the, “scratch coat”, the second is called the, “fill coat” and the third is the, “final coat”. Each workshop must be discussed with all parties and planned out so there is ample time not only for the drying of each coat, but also for things like electrical, plumbing, custom shelving, countertops, installing appliances and so on. With all that said, our schedule of plaster workshops that we will be hosting is listed below. We are especially excited about the 4th workshop that will be an “all mighty” (comprehensive) workshop which will include an exterior phase, an interior phase, a summary of everything to date and also some custom wall work as we make and apply niches, custom shelving and so on. Of course, there is always a chance of a problem arising and the need to postpone a workshop. However, we will do our very best to stick to this schedule. If anything changes, we’ll let you know ASAP so you can attempt to change your schedule. Without further ado, here is the schedule. Please RSVP to to which workshop(s) you would like to attend and we will send you more information.
