We are excited to team up with master artisan Steve Millard of CNY Concrete Countertops to bring you one of a kind training on amazing techniques such as wood look concrete.
Pros: This is your chance to get REALLY creative with concrete. Do you want to learn how to do this?
These incredible wood look concrete countertops were created using GFRC, rubber molds, integral pigments and glazes. Yes, this is really concrete! And the island features faux fire!
How about this?
Yes, this is concrete too, transformed with glazes into incredible natural marble and granite looks.
What if you could transform any old laminate, granite, concrete or even tile backer board surface into beautiful troweled concrete?
These transformations were achieved using a microtopping simply troweled on, like frosting a cake!
Learn all of this June 22-24, 2022 with Steve Millard and Jeff Girard. They will teach you how to use rubber molds, GFRC, glazes, and microtoppings to create these incredible effects.
This advanced, immersive, 3-day (8:30am – 5:30pm), in-studio training focuses on the amazing transformational looks you can achieve with:
- Buddy Rhodes pigments and glazes
- Buddy Rhodes GFRC Blended Mix
- Smooth-On rubbers
- CCI Finale microtopping
- CCI Ovation sealer
You will be taught by and work side by side with Steve and Jordan Millard and Jeff Girard in the spacious CNY Concrete Countertops studio in East Syracuse, NY. Not only will you create hands-on projects in a working shop, but also you’ll see how the CNY showroom and shop are set up. CNY is just one mile from the Syracuse Hancock International Airport, and there are many hotels and eateries within a mile.
This class is designed for the established concrete artisan who wants to boost creativity and expand his or her repertoire with new skills. It does not cover mix design, forming basics, business topics, etc. This is a pure artistry class, and we’re offering it just once, Wed-Fri June 22-24, 2022.
Join us in Syracuse, and take your concrete artistry to the next level. Register now, because spaces are limited to 20 students for this one-time special event.
NOTE: This class does NOT teach how to make concrete countertops, mix design, GFRC, or any technical or business topics. It is for established concrete countertop professionals who want to expand their repertoires with new looks. ***You must have an established concrete countertop business in order to attend this class.***
