Webinar: The Branch House Plaster in Richmond

The Branch House decorative plaster is some of the most beautiful plasterwork in Virginia. Unfortunately, the century since the House was built and water intrusion have caused significant damage. You will see up-close views of the beautiful plaster figures and decorations, including the toll that time has taken on the plaster, and you will discover the history of plasterwork in the early 20th century, particularly in Richmond, as well as learn from a dedicated craftsman how this work is being saved at the Branch. The challenges of restoration are best shown in the work to save our decorative plaster. Panelists: Gibson Worsham, Glavé & Holmes Architecture, Architectural Historian Rebekah Jamerson, Master Plasterer, All Things Plaster Walter M. Dotts III, Trustee - Old House Authority, and great-grandson of John Kerr Branch and Beulah Gould Branch Note: This event will be conducted online via Zoom. Registrants will participate on their computer, iPad, or smartphone device. A link to this webinar will be sent to all registrants the day before the event.
