Venetian Plaster Masterclass Overview

The Venetian plastering masterclass was developed for those who are familiar with the basic techniques of marble plastering and would like to improve their skills and take their business a step further. You will learn a variety of high-end finishes that imitate prestigious materials or are specified for more high-end, skill-intensive projects and need a greater degree of control and tacit knowledge than most finishes currently on the market.

This Venetian plaster Masterclass is led by our Master applicator trained in Italy, with many years and thousands of square meters 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!

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.

All Venetian plastering courses come complete with complimentary lunch each day at a local Italian restaurant that serves homemade 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.


Who Should Attend This Advanced Venetian Plaster Course

We can highly recommend this Venetian Plastering masterclass to those who are familiar with the basic techniques and have been trained with Marmorino, Stucco (stucco lucido, stucco lustro, stucco veneziano, polished plaster) and travertino and would like to gain skills and control to apply and develop even more complex, bespoke finishes.
