Our Venetian Polished Plaster Course teaches you how to achieve beautiful finishes using Venetian plasters and the associated soaps, waxes, lustres and micas.
Our approach is to create a relaxed environment where you will enjoy learning, with ample opportunity for discussion throughout the day and during breaks. Course numbers on the Polished Plaster Course are limited to 7 people to ensure individual attention to each course participant.
For each session there is a step-by-step demonstration by one of our experienced, specialist plasterers. Participants have a range of boards to practice themselves, with guidance at hand throughout.
A range of colours, finishing soaps, lustres and micas are available for crating unique polished plaster finishes. Sample boards can be taken home at the end of the course.
Once the course is completed, our support does not end there. Our knowledgeable and helpful technical sales team can be called upon for troubleshooting and guidance on your individual projects. We can also supply sample boards for colour matching particular schemes and ensuring colour selection is correct before committing to larger orders.
All materials and tools are available for purchase at the end of the Venetian Polished Plaster Course, and participants will be entitled to a 10% discount on all future purchases from our range of polished plaster range and associated tools and materials.
A 10% discount is available when booking the Tadelakt and Polished Plaster courses together.
