Following the success of our hugely popular Venetian Plastering courses this year, we’re delighted to announce we have places available in October. Seeing a massive resurgence in popularity, Venetian Plastering is a specialist artisan technique resulting in beautiful finishes.

Our intensive 3-day course of classic Italian polished plasters is taught in collaboration with Whitson's Ltd and led by Rob Groom, a polished plaster specialist of 15 years. Cait Whitson herself is also available to offer technical advice and support. This course will cover everything you need to get yourself off the ground using polished and textured plaster.

You will leave the course understanding preparation, priming, how to apply classic Venetian Plasters and how to apply protection. You will be guided with personal attention through techniques that will broaden your skill base and give confidence to use most of the plasters that Whitson’s Ltd supply. Whilst previous trowel experience would be advantageous, this course is suitable for beginners and those who want to bring their previous tuition up to date.

Next start date is Monday 9 October 2023. Click here to book your place. If you’d like to find out more - email us at [email protected] or call 0131 6611833.

After course options & support

Our support does not end when your course is complete! You can join our support group on WhatsApp and will have direct telephone support from Cait at Whiton's on product selection and application.
