Design Consultation and Application
We want to help your dreams come true. Share your vision for your ideal space with Anna Wolfson, founder and principal artisan of Wolfson Earthen Finishes. Contact us by phone or email for a preliminary discussion of your ideas.
Following our initial conversation, we will schedule a consultation for you (your decorator, architect, etc. are welcome) to meet with Anna to design and develop your project. You and Anna can discuss products, textures, materials and colors. She will show you samples and pictures of applications.
After the consultation, Anna will create custom samples and/or drawings unique to your project along with an estimate of the cost and proposed schedule. Custom samples may vary slightly from the finished product on the walls due to natural variations in texture and color. Upon approval of your sample and receipt of deposit, we will schedule a starting date.
Before Wolfson Earthen artisans begin their work, remove everything from the walls. During the project, you will have access to the space and we will make sure it is tidy at the end of each day. We will need a utility sink. Depending on the nature of the project, we may employ other contractors to help create the space. At the completion of your project, your new earthen environment will be left clean and neat. Your total satisfaction is important to us.
A consultation fee of $100 is due at the time of your on-site meeting with Anna and your design team.
Custom samples cost of $50 each. Up to three of these custom samples will be subtracted from the total cost for the project if you decide to contract with us.
Half the contracted price is due with the signed contract. The balance is due on completion of the project.
Planning workshops of course is different, but begins in the same fashion.
Wolfson Earthen Artisans can lead a workshop for any portion of your Natural Building project; the stacking of straw bales, cob mixing for major or minor projects, the finishing interior or exterior coats on your walls, or the design charette at the very onset of your project.
What do you want to learn? Where? Why? When? Alongside whom? Your family, co-workers, friends, students, neighbors? Let’s talk. We would love to further your experiences in Natural Art and Construction.
Please Contact us with your idea and your visions of a workshop, and the dialogue shall begin.
