Venetian Plastering Course Overview

Our Venetian plastering course in London will demonstrate and teach you the most important techniques of Venetian plastering (also called marble plastering or polished plastering); on this course you will learn how to create a smooth Marmorino, textured (pitted and dragged) Travertino and smooth polished plaster (stucco lustro, stucco lucido, stucco Veneziano) finish on walls and ceilings.

The course is lead by a Master applicator trained in Italy, with many years and thousands of square metres of experience who will not only answer all your questions, but also make sure you will leave with the skills to create stunning feature walls and ceilings!

Our courses come complete with complimentary lunch each day at a local Italian restaurant that serves home made English and Italian dishes.

If you book this course you’re also eligible for a 15% discount on our Venetian plaster starter pack (lots of plasters and tools included) on the course days, when bought in person.

Our trademarked training system concentrates on the nature of the materials and the traditions and modern aspects of the application and was not made to accommodate the application or materials of a single manufacturer. Our focus is on the applicator and his knowledge and not on the make of the plaster.

This course will not only explain the importance but also demonstrate the application of various Venetian plaster base coats, differences between acrylic and lime-based polished plaster, protectors and colour washes which can enrich and protect the finishes.

This Venetian plastering course is part of the Impera Italia training system, providing you with a 20 credits towards the  ‘LEVEL1 Impera Italia Approved Applicator’ certificate, after which you can proceed to take the ‘Level1 Impera Italia Approved Applicator’ exam.

All of our courses cover traditional and modern Italian and British marble plaster application methods and effects, but concentrate on certain aspects – making sure that the finishes are not only beautiful, but can meet the current market demand.
