An intensive hands on plastering course suitable for all tradespersons looking to add more skills. Or a complete beginner looking for a career change.
No previous experience is needed. This plastering course provides a wealth of background information as well as five days of intense training. A course suitable for beginners, tradespersons even enthusiastic DIY’ers.
You will be given a set of plastering tools to use during the course. You will work in your own full size plastering training bay which is bigger than most small bedrooms or bathrooms (2.4m in length and full room height at 2.4m). You will not share your bay! We only have 5 plastering training bays to ensure you are taught to the highest standard with a low student to teacher / trainer ratio. The room is filled with various scenarios – stud wall, block wall, pre-skimmed wall, a window, a block wall corner and everyone’s favourite – a decent size ceiling!
Once you have boarded and prepared your room (plastering training bay) it will be time to get messy – yes we would advise you to bring a change of clothes or a decorators over suit because once you start plastering a ceiling for the first time it can be messy. Once you have an hour or so under your belt and start to learn the technique you will start to get more on the ceiling then our floor.
Plastering walls will be next and this is when your arm will appreciate our nice big plastering training bays! 2.4m high and 2.4m long plus a window to trim up too.
You will then cover overs-skimming over previous work and repair plastering. The repair plastering requires you to bash a few holes in your work and is sometimes hard for you to accept but you will soon get over it. Feathering in (technique used on larger walls) will also be covered. Board fixing (dot and dab) will be used to board and plaster the block wall.
Plastering the full wall and ceilings will be tackled now as a complete project and not separate like the first week, you will also cover more advanced techniques such as plastering arches and curves on either walls or ceiling. We can sometime do both if time allows. The traditional method (which is still required) of plastering onto block work (bay and screed) will be used rather than board fixing (dot and dab).
Making use of the large training bays to perfect your plastering technique and build your confidence ready to take on a variety of work once you have completed the course.
Working with K-Rend onto block work (getting very popular now) to create a coloured render face which is now specified on quite a few new builds. K-Rend comes in a variety of colours so may be applying white, beige or even terracotta and does not need painting!
