1:1 Instruction / Tuition
The 1 day Plastering Course is professional but informal and due to just being 1:1 means that we can go at a pace that suits you and allows you to ask as many questions as you like.
All courses are 100% practical. Tuition is given through a series of demonstrations and then instruction whilst you are plastering a wall.
Plastering tuition is carried out in a purpose built outbuilding
A plastering course with 1:1 Tuition from DIY Plastering cannot be compared to any other plastering course.
The format of the course can change depending upon your ability and what you want to learn. This ensures that when you leave, you have not just learnt a few plastering techniques, but also how to apply these techniques to your own particular project or for your individual needs.
The 1:1 courses give you as much time as you need on the skills you need.
