Lazure Painting Workshop
By John Stolfo
Join in a day of color and wall surface transformation at Garden House. You are welcome to participate in our school hosting of a Lazure Painting workshop led by John Stolfo.
We will learn some very basic skills on how to lazure a wall or a whole room at your home. Method and the tools needed will be introduced.
|Date:||Saturday 30 September 2017|
|Time:||9:30am – 4:00pm|
|Course Fee:||HK450 for the day|
Lazure painting, as first explored in architecture by Rudolf Steiner and his collaborators in constructing the first Goetheanum building, has become one of the many anthroposophical healing arts. It slowly took root in Central Europe, spread to Scandinavia and Western European countries, and is now, after 80 years, utilised worldwide. Lazure has found its way into every imaginable building environment from Waldorf and public schools to retail and commercial spaces, corporate offices, meditation rooms, university lecture halls, prisons, children’s bedrooms.
You all have seen our extension of the playground. It was well received by children, teachers and parents alike. With the current bright white wall, we would like to Lazure it with your help and contribution.
