Four Counties School of Plastering


Just returned home after completing my 2nd weekend of this course.
What a great course it is too!! Loved every minute of it.
I'd tackled plastering previously, whilst refurbishing our house, and thought I'd done an ok job. I must have used four times as much plaster as I now know you need, and truly exhausted myself.
After just two weekends, I now know where I was going wrong.
This course will teach you how to achieve a Finnish you'll be very proud of, and ready to decorate with all the tricks of the trade.
Mike is a great instructor, and just lets you get on with it, whilst keeping a watchful eye over you, and giving advice when & where required.
You also get free coffee/tea/cakes. Bonus!!
I can't recommend this course highly enough.
Now looking forward to tackling a large ceiling at home with confidence.
A big thank you again Mike.
Second weekend, first day. It feels like I'm getting better. Better not speak too soon! Thank you to our esteemed leader, who is a great teacher and the lads I'm on the course with are great. So pleased I'm here .
Had a great time this weekend learning new skills
Looking forward to more plastering next weekend!
