Concrete Look Plastering Course Overview

Our Concrete Look plastering course in London will teach you how to create trendy, contemporary finishes using the concrete and stone effect.

In this course, you will be working with a range of Venetian plasters:

  • Traverto will enable you to create a stunning stone effect with a single coat application.
  • Concret Art is a modern acrylic plaster for exteriors and interiors that has great flexibility for creating various concrete style finishes.
  • Lime Concrete, is a powdered plaster which is an excellent way to create concrete effects and textures whilst keeping the cost down, and is presented in a beautiful natural warm grey colour.

You will also have the chance to work with our latest product, Concrete Paint! This is an easy-to-pick-up, eco-friendly material that comes in powder form and thanks to the clever use of both smooth and textured primers can show off a variety of different styles.

The Concrete Look Plastering course is led by our Italian-trained, Master applicator, with many years and thousands of square metres of experience under his belt who will not only answer all your questions but also make sure you will leave with the skills needed to create stunning feature walls and ceilings!

Our Concrete look Plastering courses come complete with a complimentary lunch each day at a local Italian restaurant that serves homemade English and Italian dishes.
