An Introduction to Ornamental Lime Plastering

Led by expert tutors, this two-day course presented by the SPAB, in association with the National Trust, provides a practical introduction to ornamental lime plastering techniques.

  • Booking essential

This course is ideal for people with plastering experience, and particularly working plasterers who are keen to expand their skill base. Working in a small group with experienced tutors, this two-day course will include a demonstration of making a running mould, and provide a practical introduction to running a cornice in-situ and forming external and internal mitres. There will also be instruction on casting and fixing enrichments as well as running fibrous plasterwork formed ‘on the bench’.

The tutors, Sean Wheatley and Michal Wolf, are knowledgeable lime plasterers with decades of onsite experience.

Spaces are limited - advance booking is recommended.
