Microcement Masterclass Overview
The Microcement Masterclass in London will not only demonstrate, but also give your hands-on experience and practice on boards and walls. You will have the opportunity to spend several hours practicing in-depth, multiple application techniques, including internal/external corners. Impera Italia’s Microcement (also called microcemento, beton cire or micro screed) is a durable coating system that can create a contemporary design on walls and floors.
On completion of the Microcement Masterclass course, you will be able to create a range of bespoke finishes using the Microcement system. You will also be familiar with the colouring, maintenance and issues of microcement and how to enhance the protection.
This course takes one full day, allowing for ample time to practice on walls, to ensure you are completely familiar with all aspects of the application process. Please be aware that we don’t teach troweling skills or how plastering works.
*All our Microcement courses come complete with complementary lunch each day at a local Italian restaurant that serves homemade English and Italian dishes.

A: We’ve started to supply wall and floor finishes in 2010 and since the very beginning offer flooring products like resins or micro screed on demand, but were never quite happy with the quality and the price / value ratio of the products. We were looking for the right durability, ease of application and the right look from a supplier with the right guarantees and capacity and in 2017 we’ve found it!
Our trademarked method is based on the demand, market requirements and the knowledge of our technicians who have applied thousands of square metres of microcement. Also, our method goes through ALL the steps and not just the decorative coating application, to ensure that you will leave with a complete, 360 degree knowledge and will be able to do any project of any size.
Q: Is there parking available onsite?
A: Yes, there is local free parking in the area and reserved parking behind our showroom.

A: The closest stations are Golders Green and East Finchley on the Northern Line and you can take the bus 102 from either to get to us. We’re only a few metres from ‘The Market Place’ bus stop.
Q: Do you teach micro cement application on walls?
A: Yes, this course includes practice on large walls, including internal/external corners. If you would like a more extensive course, which includes more in-depth demonstrations, more time to practice and the change to learn a range of finishes/looks, we recommend the 3 day course!
