ALL-IN WORKSHOP PACKAGE MAY 2017

NEW! 2.5 Day Post-Tensioned Concrete + Current Techniques Workshop

-AND-

NEW! 3 Day Advanced Finishes + Upright Casting Workshop

We are offering special package pricing for those entrepreneurial individuals that wish to attend two BRAND NEW information-packed classes back-to-back. Since these workshops are being offered for the first time, we highly encourage you to follow the links below to learn more about them. Two great reasons to sign-up for the All-In Workshop today:

1. We hold an extremely limited number of hands-on workshops per year, so they sell out fast.

2. We rarely hold classes in close succession so this is a rare opportunity for you to attend two workshops in a single week!

WORKSHOP DATES / THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES ACCESS TO THESE CLASSES

COST

There are two options, one is for students of past workshops (aka "Alumni") and the other is for a person or persons that are taking a workshop for the first time. Both groups will receive better pricing than purchasing the classes individually, making this deal a sure bet.

  • First-time Students: $3375
  • Alumni: $2970

 

ADVANCED FINISHES + UPRIGHT CASTING WORKSHOP

<<< California Workshop >>>

with Jon Schuler

Workshop Topics will include:

  • Form building from an Upright Casting point of view
  • How to craft a handmade sink using Upright Casting techniques
  • ICT Reactive Sealer application
  • Acid washing concrete
  • Use of orbital sanding techniques to achieve and finesse final finishes

The simple hand tools employed include floats, trowels, and even your own hands! The sequence and manipulation of these tools and techniques are the secret sauce needed to boost your confidence, advance your offerings, and expand your earnings. Join us for knowledge, inspiration, and the most fun you can have while mastering a lost art!

POST-TENSIONED CONCRETE + CURRENT TECHNIQUES WORKSHOP

<<< California Workshop >>>

Simply put, this workshop's priority is to teach you:

  • How we currently design and construct our forms
  • The mix designs and sealers we presently employ
  • Our most up-to-date casting techniques
  • The principles of post-tensioned concrete and how it is applicable to our scale of work

As a class, we will work together to form, cast, and de-mold a post-tensioned item. Substantial time will be devoted to Q&A (so bring your questions!), case-studies of past projects with behind-the-scenes photos, discussions of what works, and more importantly, what is a waste of time and money. 

This is not a 'basics class', but that isn't to say you have to be experienced to attend. If you are new to concrete but are serious about advancing your career within this craft, this workshop is for you. If you are a veteran and/or have attended previous Concrete Design School workshops, but want to learn how we approach and cast projects today, this workshop is for you. This class is for the individual that wants to learn from the 2,400,000+ minutes of trials and tribulations it took for us to get "here", this moment in time, not a day, month, year, or decade ago. This isn't a sales pitch, nor is it training from trainers that haven't been in the game for many years. It is a serious discussion and instruction on what works today, and why
