From Mason Greenstar's flier:
GREENSTAR BLOX™ are comprised of 65%
recycled cellulose, 25% cementitious material, and 10% natural additives.

Come join us to discover
more about our “one step building process”.

Topics of discussion will include:

• Engineering/Architectural/Construction Design details.
• Experience a hands-on demonstration.
• Learn and practice masonry skills with MGS products

In the past decade many builders have taken another
look at lime as a building material. Lime has been used for millennia, but in the 1800’s it was replaced by portland cement as the main binding materials in construction.

When installed properly, lime stuccos can last for
hundreds of years and require little or no maintenance. To ensure proper placement and protection of lime stuccos, applicators should have training to understand the material and how it

The lime section of this training seminar is designed
to expand your knowledge of what it takes to successfully install lime stucco. Topics include:
Sand gradation and particle size and how they can effect stucco strength; what a Balance Mix is; mixing, applying and compressing finish coat lime plasters and applying colored limewash.

This is a
hands-on workshop, and participants must bring protective equipment for eyes, hands, and body, a hawk and trowel; and a desire to learn.
