Working in Marrakech, Morocco - Oct. 2011
In October 2011, Tom was part of a group of decorative painters from all over the country who traveled to Marrakech, Morocco to work and learn from Melanie Royals of Royal Design Stencils. There we stenciled a 25‘ x 35’ yoga tent floor in 2 days and also stenciled a 12’ high door in a classical gold Chinoiserie style. We were able to learn how to apply Moroccan Tadelakt plaster. It is the traditional coating of the palaces, hammams and bathrooms of the riads in Morocco.
