Testimonial

from Graeme!

learn to plaster course

Hi Paul, Firstly thanks for a very educational day on Saturday. I completed my first wall today. Not a straight forward wall as it was on existing plasterwork with a window and door. in addition i had to build the reveals as the windows had just been fitted and the old plasterwork wasn't completley level so this posed a great challenge however; the result is amazing which is thanks to your patience and hints and tips. Most important for me was trowel control so that the plaster didn't all end up on the floor and not to panic when faced with trowel marks.

Thanks again.

Graeme
