Tadelakt Workshop!

A few days ago we headed over to a wonderful Sigi Koko three day workshop, in Fawn Grove, Pennsyvania. We learned how to make a Tadelakt finish over our future sinks, counter-tops, shower walls, cob oven and various other waterproof surfaces. 🙂

It’s not that difficult to make from the start, as one might think. 🙂 You really need to be careful with using slaked lime (calcium hydroxide) though – due of it being able to strip the protein from your skin within roughly … after five minutes (it is not a strict cut-off. You should aim within five minutes so then you do not get into trouble). 🙂 Simply make a nearby station where you are planning to create tadelakt with three buckets of: water, diluted vinegar and water to dip your hands into to neutralize the lime. 🙂

Here are a few pictures I took whilst learning from the amazing-cute-beautiful Sigi Koko! 😀 *I did not have my Olympus camera with me for this trip; hence the non-high quality camera work. 😉 🙂
