Introduction to Lime Plastering - One Day Course
This one-day practical course focuses on practical demonstrations and hands-on work using both fat lime putty and hydraulic lime plasters. It is suitable for anyone with a basic knowledge of lime and/or plastering. You should wear suitable work clothes. Tools and any protective clothing required will be supplied.
There will be plenty of time to talk to tutors regarding individual projects or applications. We encourage you to bring photographs of projects and samples of plasters and mortars for discussion. The amount of time we can give will depend on numbers.
The course aims to give you a full understanding of how lime plaster works and an introduction to application procedures. We have people with a wide range of skills on the course from homeowners with the limited practical knowledge to tradesmen with many years experience. We’ re obviously not going to turn you into craftsmen if you haven’t already got the tool skills but you will get a feel for the materials, an understanding of how and where they should be used.
