Participants will gain an understanding of the preparation and application of traditional lime-based plaster, and benefit from a hands-on opportunity to practice applying lime plaster to a range of surfaces - lath, masonry and modern substrates - with expert guidance.

The course will appeal to trainee and experienced craftspeople alike, as well as to others looking to develop their practical skills, and specifiers wishing to develop or enhance their understanding of traditional lime-based materials.

This course is ideal for participants with some practical skills or plastering experience who wish to develop or enhance their understanding of traditional lime-based materials. Trainees in plastering, and experienced plasterers looking to broaden their existing skills or to begin working with lime, will particularly benefit.
