Trainees engage in hands-on work

Trainee plasterers begin work on the facade of the Max-Liebling House


The first week of facade renovation at the Max-Liebling House has now begun. On day one, the trainee plasterers - Maximilian Friedel, Riccardo Köhler, Selina Pallas, Robin Paschke and Kristin Weber - received induction training from Jochen Drescher on the improvements to be made to the facade. The construction site team also included some young Israeli craftspeople.

The charitable Sto Foundation is organising and financing the extensive facade renovation work of four German-Israeli teams, each of whom will be living and working together for a ten-day period in the city between the end of March and mid-May 2019. The plan is for three teams of five trainee plasterers from the vocational training school and the vocational training centre in Leonberg to each work for one week on the facade of the Max-Liebling House. After the cracks have been renovated and any damaged plasterwork has been touched up, seven trainee painters & decorators from seven German vocational training schools will apply a gleaming new coat of paintwork to the facade.
