Repairing Plaster Walls and Ceilings

All older homes have plaster walls and ceilings, and there are many ways they can be damaged: holes created by hanging art or objects, moving light fixtures or furniture, or – even worse – water leaking from indoor plumbing or the outside.

This workshop is a great opportunity to evaluate your plaster issues and determine what remediation is needed, then practice on your own at the Esek Hopkins House. From securing loose plaster to patching holes or even rebuilding a whole section of a wall, you’ll be guided by Noel Sanchez, a restoration builder of 30+ years as he demonstrates and helps you practice this skill. Go home with more knowledge of how to fix your own plaster issues.

Best for advanced beginners or mid-level DIYers.
