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 course is lead by our premier applicator in London who will explain and demonstrate the applications before you start with the advanced Venetian plastering techniques. During the two days you will gain the techniques and control to apply these finishes on large feature walls and ceilings.
All courses come complete with complimentary lunch each day at a local Italian restaurant that serves home made English and Italian dishes.
You will also gain a better understanding of how to repair Venetian polished plaster finishes. This is a LEVEL 2 course in value of 10 credits.
