Presenting Maurizio Bertoli's expert approach to stone restoration is MB Stone's owner Stu Rosen. Stu Rosen worked with Maurizio for several years, and has been heading up MB's contracting operations for quite some time. Stu runs a successful restoration company and still spends much time working in the field. He will share with you the wisdom he has gained over a career of experience as well as the trade secrets that made Maurizio Bertoli's expert approach to stone care world famous.


Throughout the days of classes dedicated to teaching students the skills needed to get started, Stu will pass on the passion and wisdom that Maurizio shared with so many. The class provides attendees with an unbiased look into stone restoration equipment, tools, diamonds, polishing compounds and accessories. Additionally, the unparalleled MB line of products will be available for purchase.

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The seminar will span 4 days. Lunch will be provided daily from a local Italian Deli. Class will start each day at 9AM and end at 6PM. For students who have questions or would like additional hands on training, opportunities to stay afterwards with the instructors will be available. To provide a more conducive learning experience, and to ensure all students have an opportunity to work the equipment, classes will be limited to 8-10 students. Join us for this one of a kind, interactive training experience.

Stone restoration is not about following static recipes or blocks of instructions. Stone restoration is about thinking on your feet and applying a broad set of fundamental expertise to solve unexpected or previously unseen problems. That is why we believe in a hands on learning experience for all of our students. A copy of Maurizio Bertoli’s book (the natural stone restoration bible as we refer to it) will be sent out upon enrolling in the class. This will give you a great opportunity for some advanced reading. This invaluable resource is included as a part of your tuition.

  

 

 

* There will be transportation available from the hotel to the class everyday and lunch will also be provided.

The class and conversation continue as we share dinner together as well. Of course this is optional.
