I recently finished the weekend course so 2 days then another 2 days the next weekend….I turned up thinking I’ll give it a go and if it’s not for me, then at least I tried…Dave was exceptional in his teaching and mentoring throughout. He used demos, walking through explanations and being that point of reference whenever I had any doubts or questions throughout our practise. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I entered the course with doubts and left the course after 4 days full of confidence to tackle my own home DIY project. The years of knowledge, mastery and applicable knowledge is massively evident when learning. From the demos to the catchphrases Dave has fine tuned this course to be crystal clear! There’s no grey areas when you leave on the final day, better yet you go away wanting to tackle your own project straight away. Big thank you to Dave for making it such a great learning experience. Very proud of my finished result.

Just Finished my 4 days with dave, starting as a complete novice thinking what am I doing here, after 4 days of daves guidance I’m now confident enough to crack on with my own walls with the words still in my head, thick,fast and even, angle and pressure angle and pressure, great 4 days with good lads and a top teacher, and great value for money I would recommend this course for any beginner cheers Dave
Pete Jones   Wakefield
This is a fantastic course that I would highly recommend. Dave is superb, he explains everything very clearly and logically.
With no previous experience of plastering before I started the course, after only four days with Dave, I now feel ready to tackle some big DIY projects at home. During the breaks on the course, Dave was happy to talk through any DIY projects which really helps get the most out of your time on the course.
It was all great fun too, can’t believe how quick the days go. Thanks very much Dave, really glad I booked onto the course.

Totally recommend this course. If you are wanting to learn how to plaster then this is definitely the course to go on. I’ve never picked a trowel up in my life or mixed plaster so was a bit apprehensive that I wouldn’t be able to do it, but with daves Exellent and professional teaching abilities I was actually able to mix,and plaster a wall to a very good standard. Dave explains everything in such great detail you cannot fail to plaster. If you are thinking about doing it then just do it! I can guarantee you will leave there knowing 100% how to plaster. Exellent course and Exellent teacher you will not be disappointed and for the price someone may charge you just to plaster 1 room it’s worth it! Thanks again jay and nigel
Jason Symonds   Oldham
A brilliant way to learn how to plaster. Dave is an excellent teacher.

Thanks again Dave, the skills learnt will be put to great use

I did this course last week, going in to it i didn’t think that it was for me but wanted to give it a go. Dave has a really good setup and is very knowledgeable about the trade and also delivers the course extremely well, he’s a lovely bloke and the course is definitely worth doing. So if your thinking about giving it go it’s a 4 day course, I was very pleased with the out come. Cheer

This is an excellent 4 day course, which has been well put together by Dave the Instructor. For any tradesman or DIY Enthusiast who is looking to attempt some plastering work, and does not have the experience or knowledge, look no further. By Day 4 you will walk away with the confidence knowing you have a solid foundation to build on. You will be able to plaster a wall to professional standards and be proud of how far you have come in such little time. Excellent course, no classroom work, just Plaster, Plaster, Plaster.

Adam Barrett    Barnsley
Julie Beattie Elland
I wanted to do plastering and came across this course. I have learnt loads, wasn’t completely sure that by day 4 I could mix, plaster and finish a bay. but I CAN. In a really mixed group it has been a brilliant learning environment and Dave has all the answers . Cannot wait to get started. All I need is the t-shirt…something to remind me….angle and pressure….
Many Thanks and highly recommended

Mark Bishop Cleckheaton
My husband Mark came on the course (he’s not got Facebook) He said he’s had the best 4 days with great people and he’s been highly singing your praises Dave. He’s learnt so much and can’t wait to try out his new skills. He keeps coming out with all your little sayings such as: thick, quick and even.
He would highly recommend.
Mark Bishop    Cleckheaton
Mark Myers Cleckheaton
So I arrived on the course thinking I have no chance plastering is an art of finesse and at 6ft4″ that’s something I don’t possess. but with Dave’s words still ringing in my ear “angle and pressure, angle and pressure” I managed to get the hang of it. By weekend 2 I was surprised at just how far we had all come.
it’s not about finesse at all it’s a technique and its like riding a bike.
Dave was brilliant and answered all my questions (and by all I mean loads) so thanks Dave and I wish you well in the future.
Mark Myers   Sheffield
Chris Ayrton Dewsbury

Sept 2022  From the starting point of zero ability at plastering, Dave brought all 7 of us on over 4 days, to the point where we were all totally satisfied with our finished plastering on walls and ceilings. We were shown how to prepare, board out and plaster, with lots of tips on patching and different surfaces. We plastered from day one and practiced, practiced, practiced. Thanks Dave, for the energy, experience and hard work you put in to making us plasterers!

I had never even attempted to plaster before and now i can do it and to a high standard.. very well instructed course and being in a trade i know for most the best way to learn is to just have a go and do it, learn from where you go wrong and perfect it and that is exactly what happens here . no sit down lessons all practical so giving you the chance to JUST DO IT .
Cant rate this place enough…

James Aston    Blackburn

April 2022  On the first day I was hesitant as I’d never done anything like this prior, Dave was amazing explained everything from step 1 , an amazing course each day learning and progressing with plastering !! And I can say after a great teacher and an amazing course I can actually plaster !!

Jan 2022 5 stars from me, David was a great tutor and was a brilliant group too work with.!!
Sean Ritchie Leeds
Jan 2022  Where to start?! Dave is one of the best tutors I’ve met and the course is fantastic. On day one (& every day if I’m honest) I entered the unit with fear and worry that I wouldn’t be able to do it, I wouldn’t be strong enough, I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the others… but Dave gave me confidence and his excellent teaching skills showed me that actually despite being tiny I could do it. And I think I did it well! The others on the course were lovely and we had a good laugh over the four days and it was amazing to see the standard of plastering we were all achieving after only a few days. To think on day 4 we plastered a whole bay independently is crazy but we did it! And a lot better than the plasterers I’ve paid for in the past. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone – whatever your age, size, skill… well worth every penny! Thanks so much for a great week x
Becky Richardson   Manchester
Billy Holmes Huddersfield
Jan 2022  Good experience David was a top guy and taught us all well would definitely recommend it’s crazy how fast with his good techniques and methods we picked it up and got pretty good so fast definitely would recommend

Jan 2022 Dave is great at teaching you how to plaster. Also very genuine and helpful with good laughs along the way. I doubted my own ability but after 4 days I could actually do it. Since then I have bought the tools needed and have been plastering walls at home. Improves the more you plaster. I would definitely recommend the course.

Wade Sheffield
Nov 2021 Before starting I thought it was going to be almost impossible to learn to plaster in 4 days with no experience. but after day one my confidence grew cos the way Dave taught us,kept it simple with no pressure to help us relax. As the days went on we got better and quicker after finishing today I’ve already got a job plastering tomorrow so thanks Dave I’ll be sure to send you some pics of the work. I’d encourage anyone to complete this course weather it’s to plaster for yourself at home or to become a plasterer.
Wade  Margrim     Sheffield

Tricia Riley Doncaster
Nov 2021   Hi, we attended a four day course in October this year. My boyfriend booked course without speaking to me first as he thought it would be ‘nice surprise and good to learn to plaster together’ Now I’m 7stone 6lb wet through and definitely not built like a plasterer!
I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to even lift the hawk, never mind get some plaster on a wall. But my biggest concern was that I held the class up.
How wrong was I – Dave reassured me as soon as we arrived that I would be able to plaster by the end of the week. So we started course in the same booth together and there was absolutely no pressure whatsoever on me to keep up as everyone in the group helped each other along the way.
Dave is a great instructor who has the knack of being able to teach by both explaining and demonstrating the techniques with loads of practical tips, not only as a group but on an individual basis when required.
So by Thursday afternoon Dave was right, we could plaster, and plaster to a standard that we would be happy to have paid for.
We had a fantastic, fun packed, educational week which passed far too quickly and we were both sad to leave (can we come back!!). We now inspect plastered wall wherever we go – as Dave said we would and T Q & E will live with us forever.
If you have any thoughts about wanting to learn to plaster then please try this course. I promise you will not be disappointed. Dave’s even got some new scrubbing brushes – the old ones didn’t have a bristle between them both.. Thanks Dave, our instructor and now our friend.

Yvonne Davidson Blackburn
Oct 2021   This course is brilliant! Thanks to Dave’s excellent and patient teaching, with the knowledge I’ve gained, the techniques I’ve mastered and the practical experience I’ve had over 4 days, I can plaster!!! And I’m a 61 year old Granny! Can’t recommend this course highly enough.
Yvonne Davidson    Blackburn
Oct 2021  This course gave me the confidence to take a room to bare brick, plasterboard it then plaster it. I had never done any of these things before. Can’t thank you enough Dave.
Stuart Thomason  Leeds
James Taylor Bradford
Oct 2021  I’ve been tempted to this course for a couple of years but always thought it would be impossible to pick it up over 2 weekends, how wrong I was.
From the moment I arrived Dave put me at ease and I can honestly say is the most patient and helpful teacher you could ever have.
I could not believe I was able to plaster a wall on my first day and I have to say I was impressed with the quality of plastering done by all of us on the course after the last weekend.
You will learn how to plasterboard, tape up, mix plaster and apply it.
I really cannot recommend Dave and his course enough, I’ll be tackling my own jobs as soon as my trowel arrives.
Thanks again Dave for for a great course
James Taylor  Bradford
David Walsh Bradford
Oct 2021  Absolutely brilliant course, I’m a HGV mechanic and never thought I’d be able to plaster, but with David’s help I actually found it easy to do, wish I’d done this course years ago and saved myself a fortune in paying plasterers
Couldn’t ask for a nicer teacher so patient and helpful thanks Dave
David Walsh    Bradford
Sept 2021  Such a great course to attend. Dave is a fantastic teacher and you will be shocked by the progress you can make in just four days. I now have the confidence to take on the plastering in our house, as I recite thick, quick and even in my head and know that the end outcome will be superb! Thank you Dave!
Emma Roberts   Manchester
Nia Phillips Manchester
Sept 2021  Dave runs an excellent course, it was worth traveling 4 hours to. He is so knowledgeable and patient. I didn’t expect to be able to plaster as well as I could by the end of the course, many folk said I wouldn’t be able to learn in 4 days… but I can confidently say I can now plaster and plaster well! My wife and I have a big house reno going on and this will not only save us a fortune but will also give us a real sense of achievement having plastered it ourselves. Highly recommend this course to anyone looking to gain these skills! Thank you Dave!
Nia Phillips    Manchester
Sept 2021  Booked myself on a 4 day weekend course , well worth the money , Dave was brilliant , learnt loads , I’ve already been earning extra cash from jobs

Steve Thornley Leeds
Sept 2021  Just home from from my fourth day at Learn To Plaster Huddersfield. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Thoroughly enjoyed my time over there and Dave is a great teacher. Plastering isn’t the mystical dark art I thought it was, it’s like learning an instrument, technique and practice. I’m certain Gill Spensley will make sure I get alot of practice in over the coming months!

Lucy George Barnsley
Sept 2021  Best decision I’ve ever made doing this course. Dave was amazing and a brilliant teacher. Never thought after 4 days I would be able to plaster myself. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting to learn to do something for themselves. So far I’ve done hallway stairs and landing with plasterboard also and some skimming on old Yorkshire houses wasn’t easy. But with all the skills Dave taught me I have done a good job if I do say so myself .
Thanks again Dave for everything.

Adam Worral Leeds
Sept 2021  I went on this course with no idea of how to plaster to now feeling confident to be able to do rooms in our house. Dave is an excellent teacher, great at explaining and showing you what to do. If you are thinking about whether to do this course – book it! – Adam

Gavin Foster     Preston
June 2021  I’ve just completed the 4 day course, and what can I say ? I went in on Monday knowing absolutely nothing and left on Thursday extremely happy with what I learnt and my newly developed skill. Dave is brilliant, teaches the technique in a very simple way that you can’t help but understand, and you get plenty of practice over the rest of the days. so glad I chose Learn to Plaster. Honestly pick Dave to teach you and you can’t go wrong, you will not regret it.

June 2021    Great course split out nicely into stages that are easy to get your head around, David the instructor covers everything you need to know and is happy to answer any questions you have, and is a lovely bloke. Couldn’t be happier ! Thick, quick and even always the way.
Jamie Highley   Oldham
June 2021  I won’t lie I looked to do the course about 18 months ago but was sceptical about what you learn in 4 days. I must say it’s great value for money the quality of skimming I was able to do by end of day 4 was better than what I’ve seen people pay for. I’m now confident that I can reskim the walls in my house and who knows where that may lead me to maybe a little side earner of a weekend. Remember thick quick and even…. Angle and pressure! Thanks David all the best for the future.
Ashley Pilling     Leeds

David Everall    Manchester
I have just completed the midweek 4 day course and I am so happy I went through with booking it. I read online many people saying “you can’t learn to plaster in 4 days”. I can assure you that Dave (tutor) well an truly destroys that myth. I joined the course with zero experience in how to plaster. 4 days later, with the help and expertise of Dave, I have left with the skill and confidence to undertake any plastering work that needs doing. Whether that be re-skimming, plaster boarding, dot n dabbing or fixing holes in the wall, I have learn it all. (So did the other 6 people on my course, we all left with the confidence in our ability to undertake our own jobs)
If you are worried about not picking it up in 4 days or just worried about attending the course for other reasons. I would say dont be worried at all! I guarantee you will leave with having learned a lifelong skill and also saved yourself a few quid in the process. You will just wish you would have done it sooner.
What sets the course apart is Dave, the tutor. He is incredible, really great fella! Not only does Dave teach you how to plaster both theoretically and practically to a high standard, he also creates such a comfortable atmosphere to learn in. I know for some it can feel daunting attending a course alone or out of your comfort zone and that could be a factor why you might not want to book on, but trust me, attend the course and you will see what I mean. It is such a relaxed and comfortable environment to learn in. Dave takes the time explaining each step in a methodical way where you never feel out of your depth. To be honest, It is almost harder not to pick it up in the 4 days with his method of teaching haha! There is no such thing as a silly question or no wanting to rush you through in parts either. You won’t leave the course with a fake confidence in your skill. Each individual will get the time and knowledge you need to get you plastering to a great standard. The other beauty of Dave is you can soak up all his years of experience so you know what you can an can’t do, he gives you great tips and tricks to help cut out alot of potential costly mistakes and pit falls that you could come across. Like I stated above, nothing is too much for him. Dave is a really genuine man who just wants to make people proficient in plastering.
So I will reiterate again, please do book on this course if you are thinking about it. Don’t hesitate an then not go through with it. I am over the moon I went through with booking it and learning how to plaster.
Thank you again, learn to plaster and Dave, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you and an even bigger pleasure to learn on your course. Keep up the great work mate, Thanks

May 2021  The course is amazing for anyone who wants to learn plastering the professional way, I went their with very little knowledge of plastering & just the thought if plastering was like rocket science no clue at all. Since I started the course the tutor has been amazing with all the professional knowledge and expertise passed on to us through the training. I have learnt so much through this plastering course which has boosted my confidence in plastering & I’ve been trained how to complete the job professionally. Dave has been an excellent tutor & thanks to him we have managed to plaster like a professional, it has been an amazing experience & the course was brilliant.

May 2021  Just arrived home after completing the weekend course. What a great experience. I have literally learnt how to plaster to a VERY GOOD standard in just 4 days. I started as a complete beginner and by the end of the course I was surprised at how much I picked up. From day one I through questions at Dave left right and centre and he answered all of them and made sure I understood. Just like me at first, you’re probably wondering how much would one actually learn in just a few days, is it worth it etc? You won’t know me, but just trust me. Nothing to lose. Everything to gain. A fantastic course and a fantastic tutor. I have learnt a new skill thanks to Dave ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

May 2012  Me and my Boyfriend James did the 4 day course to help us renovate our own home. I was very nervous about doing the course and it was all new to James and couldnt be further away from his job and comfort area (He has no labouring or any DIY experience at all). Dave was the best teacher. He is very knowledgeable, patient, helpful and most of all friendly and very approachable. Dave made the course and full experience fun and enjoyable and what is most important both me and James have come away learning to plaster and feeling really confident to crack on with our house. I never thought it was possible to learn to plaster in 4 days but it really is. Get it on Thick, Quick and Even and remember the Angle and Pressure … The course is money well spent and we would 100% reccomend and would tell anyone considering to DO IT. Thank you Dave for all your help and support. Top Man . Hayley and James x

Vladimir Milanov    Wakefield

Apr 2021   Dave is a brilliant teacher. I felt like I could ask him anything and he would answer it in detail and give a good explanation to every question that was asked during the 4 days. I was sceptical at first whether I could actually learn to plaster in 4 days but I definitely did and I now have the confidence to re plaster my house and it will save me an absolute fortune. All for £340. When I consider that to replaster my house would have cost thousands of pounds, it’s an absolute bargain. Honestly this is an amazing course and you’ll be surprised what you can learn in 4 days. I’d recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn to plaster quickly.

If your thinking of learning to plaster, then look no further than learn to plaster. No review I write for Dave @ Learn to plaster would be enough and give him as much credit as he deserves.

Raza Ali Keighley
Feb 2021  Prior to coming on the course, all I heard from plasterer was, what you going to learn in 4 days, its a waste of money. I would love to say they were right, but ABSOLUTELY NOT.. Let me assure you, coming on the course is one of the best things I have done. I have never plastered in my life nor did i know anything about plastering before attending. In the 4 days, ive gone from knowing nothing to becoming confident, having the ability and knowing I can plaster anything that required. Both at home and also as a potential business. By day 4, I was totally independant with no help and support required by Dave ( who was there if anyone needed him)
Dave, the teacher/tutor is brilliant. He has patience, doesnt rush you,lets you work at your own pace and has a wonderful way of teaching. A great bloke with a good sense of humour who makes teaching fun. Not only have I learnt plastering, but ive learnt a skill for life.

Raza Ali     Keighley

Aamar Mahmood Keighley
Feb 2021  Absolutely recommended!!
Prior to this course I have never plastered. This course has taught me what I need to know to crack on with plastering. I will not be ever calling for a plasterer again
Let’s put it this way, I would not allow anyone I know to ever phone for a plasterer
I was able to see my own confidence grow and by the 4th day Dave the tutor didn’t need to visit me as I didn’t really need him as he taught me everything there is to plastering.
100% recommended
Aamar  Mahmood      Keighley
John Hocking Leeds
Dec 2020  I can’t recommend Learn To Plaster enough.
For anyone who thinks they could never plaster, do this course.
I’ve gone from never attempting it before, to feeling confident enough to tackle any plastering tasks, big or small which is all down to Dave’s expertise and teaching methods.
Thanks again Dave.

Aaron Rimmer Liverpool
Dec 2020Excellent course! A perfect mixture of practical & theory. The course is great for anybody looking to either become a full-time plasterer or just carry out bits of DIY at home.

Dec 2020  I’m not in the trade and have never felt confident with DIY so never in my life did I think I could learn to plaster – sort of did the course on a whim because my house needs doing – now I feel completely confident!!!! Thanks so much Dave, fantastic course. Entirely recommend

Katherine Goodhew    Barnsley

Dec 2020   just finished the 4 day course it was brilliant I wish i would have done it years ago. Dave was excellent really knows his stuff, it was relaxed friendly and professional would highly recommend to anybody looking at getting into plastering.

Dec 2020   Just finished the 4day course. all you need to know to get the job done dave was helpfull and made sure we covered all points of the trade i needed to know and more.. the class came highly recommended and i would say the same to anyone looking to start the trade or just your own personal DIY jobs to phone Dave without hesitation… 10/10

Phil Henderson        Harrogate

Dec 2020  The four day course was incredible. We went from a stud wall frame to a fully plasterboarded and plastered section with ceiling and window! All of the fundamentals were covered; how to mix plaster, how to use the tools, how to apply first and second coats and how to give the professional finish. We also learned about “dot and dab” how to fill holes and how to be a productive plasterer. I feel confident to take on projects now! Quick, thick and even… angle and pressure!
Robyn Woodrow       Rotherham
Nov 2020  As an Electrical Business our aim was to be able to offer a more complete service with suitable training.
Learn to Plaster have exceeded our expectations in only 4 days, and we would confidently approach even larger plastering jobs without hesitation.
Dave is a thoroughly nice personable guy, and his experience in both plastering and training is excellent.
Highly recommended.

Nov 2020 If anyone is thinking twice or has any doubts about the course… Honestly clear your doubts and wash your minds because, this is one course where in such less time you will pick up tremendous amount of knowledge and skills to actually being able to plaster full walls and ceilings. Dave teaches techniques and gives sincere and proper advice about anything and everything related to plastering. You can ask him a million questions and he will answer and wont mind. On the opposite he actually enjoyed the millions of questions we threw at him. Great teaching skills and a great teacher and im glad i learnt plastering from him.
Cheers Dave

Nov 2020 I don’t usually do recommendations but David at Learn to Plaster definitely deserves one.
If you have ever wanted to give plastering a go this course is a must and worth every penny. I have developed a new skill in only four days!
The course does exactly what it says it will and David is a great teacher who takes you through the process from boarding up, mixing, plastering and finishing, answering any questions and queries along the way.
Thanks again David
All I need now is a wall that needs plastering!!
Also met a great bunch of lads too.

Kevin Doyle Leeds
Nov 2020 Had a great 4 days at Learn to Plaster with a great set of lads!
Dave is a great bloke and a fantastic teacher, his knowledge and advice is second to none and I would suggest what Dave doesn’t know about plastering probably isn’t worth knowing.
The course itself covers every aspect, boarding, preparation, mixing and more, and importantly the techniques needed to plaster well.
I’m amazed by how quickly I progressed from been a complete beginner and the speed and quality I managed to achieve in just 4 days.
I would recommend this course to anybody whether your a complete beginner like myself or somebody already working in a trade, it caters for all.
I take away with me a great new skill and Dave’s famous saying: QUICK, THICK AND EVEN.
Thanks again Dave

Kevin Doyle


Beckie Fowler Bradford
Nov 2020 Amazing! I was nervous as I am a complete novice to anything like this but Dave put my mind at ease. He is so knowledgeable, patient and an excellent teacher. A really great week and I was surprised about what I can now do. 100% recommended x

Beckie Fowler

Nov 2020 The course was exactly as described, across the 4 days we learnt how to plaster.
Dave was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. The course was very hands on from the start and Dave was always on hand to offer advice or encouragement.
He also answered many additional DIY questions in the break times! Can’t recommend this course enough for anyone looking to learn a new skill and save some money in the long run.



Nov 2020 Forget the rest Dave’s the best. Great course over 2 weekend’s. Dave taught me everything I needed to get plastering. Dave is always on hand to steer you in the right direction, give you the confidence you need to crack on and answer any questions you might have. Great course at a great price, Cheers Dave

Joe Bell Sheffield
Oct 2020 Dave the teacher/tutor is unbelievably helpful, teaches everything you need to know about plastering, he’ll not just say this is how you do it and leave you to get on with it, he’ll come round to make sure your work is up to standard and if it’s not he’ll help you show you what you’re doing wrong and what you’re doing right too. It’s an enjoyable course not just like a work course.

Terri Jade

Dan Braggington Blackpool
Oct 2020  Just completed a 4 day course with learning to plaster. Unbelievable value for money.
Course started with a straight forward introduction and were able to get hands on straight away boarding up. One thing that certainly helps is your slapping on plaster frequently and mixing. A nice touch was after each mix and plaster we were tidying up. This helped keep the area and tools clean which can only be a good thing going forward.
We progressed into more bigger jobs though the week but teaching and plastering was done at a comfortable rate.
In terms of Dave the instructor you couldn’t ask to meet a more friendly and helpful bloke. Everyday lads were asking different questions asking for advice and he was able to help every time. The amount of knowledge the group gained from him answering a variety of questions was brilliant and helped give you more confidence and understanding.
In terms of the group it was a cracking set of lads all with different backgrounds in diy. Couldn’t have asked for more friendly down to earth set of lads

July 2020  Back from a fantastic week at Learn to Plaster. Anyone thinking of doing a plastering course then this is the course to book. Dave is genuinely one of the nicest fellas i’ve ever met who is an expert in all things plastering. He’s there to answer any questions and has bags of knowledge. I think the words ‘thick’ ‘quick’ and ‘even’ will be stuck with me for life. And as bonus you will even get to learn how to butter the perfect slice of toast. Cheers Dave and all the best

Juy 2020…Thoroughly enjoyed my time on the course. David is a brilliant teacher who obviously knows his stuff, very informative throughout. I was sceptical at first, all you hear from people is that it takes years to learn. however this course gives you such a good level of knowledge, you are then able to move forward and develop your skills at home or in the workplace. I went on the course to learn a new skill to use at home to renovate my house, I can certainly say this was money well spent. thanks again David.

Andy Lee Bradford

Feb 2020…If you want to learn to plaster, do it with Dave!! I am one of the most sceptical people you could ever meet. Learn to plaster in 4 days he says!! Not a chance I say!! How WRONG i am. I have just completed the 4 day course, never having seen an 11 inch Marshalltown in my life. The whole course is delivered at the right level as you progress through the 4 days. Plastering every day with as little or much guidance as you need.
I am now 100% confident that I have the knowledge and skill to plaster a room to a standard that I would pay someone else to do. That is all thanks to Dave, the owner and tutor, who has been involved in plastering for many years. Dave also provides after course support in case you have any further questions or advice.
Top bloke, top course, value for money -absolutely. Book a course, you will not be disappointed!!

Feb 2020…I was on the 4 day course; thoroughly enjoyed it and me and the other 5 lads were really impressed with the results we achieved under Dave’s guidance. He explained and demonstrated good techniques and also mistakes we were likely to make and the reasons why.
He also provided info about different tools and types of mortar as well as tips about making the best use of your time and mortar when plastering.
I’d strongly recommend this course.

BUT I COULD! If you want to learn to plaster you WILL on this course with Dave and have bags of fun along the way too. Excellent value for money. (Oh and the girls out numbered the boys on our course)

Sept 2019…Fantastic 4 day course. Came in as an idiot and left as an idiot that could plaster. Dave is a great teacher and shows everything so simply and makes it easy to follow. I came in hoping to learn how to tidy the walls up in my house to a decent standard and left feeling like a professional plasterer that could tackle anything. 10/10

May 2019…Warning: this plastering course could change your life…. if anyone tells you that you can’t learn to plaster in four days, they are totally wrong. I learnt to plaster and met some great people. Dave is a great teacher, really patient and good at explaining the necessary techniques, he will even give you some top tips for buttering your toast!

Liz Sunley

Apr 2019…This was quite simply brilliant! I still can’t believe that I turned up on day one absolutely clueless and left perfectly confident that I can plaster. The four days just flew by! It’s friendly, relaxed, thorough, effective and most of all great fun. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone and everyone, from aspiring tradesmen to those who just love to learn a new skill. Give it a go and surprise yourself!

Ryan Farmer Manchester

Feb 2019..Cannot recommend Dave enough! Had a brilliant 4 days learning to plaster. Was debating whether it was even possible to learn in 4 days on the drive down on Monday but it 100% is. If you want to learn then Dave is the man, friendly, welcoming and full of knowledge. Gone from knowing pretty much nothing to being able to plaster to a standard I am over the moon with.

Thanks again Dave

Ryan Farmer

Feb 2019..4 days of fun, getting dirty and no nonsense plastering. I’ve learnt a new skill and I would never have thought the end finish would be that good. Dave’s a great teacher and all round nice guy. Can’t wait to take on my own home with confidence.

Jan 2019…I’d thoroughly recommend this course for anyone considering home renovations or just a bit of DIY. Dave goes through it all from start to finish and you’ll be amazed at the level you’ll be able to achieve very quickly.

Becca Wilson Leeds

Dec 2018..Just finished the four day course over two weekends and had an amazing time!.
It’s such a fantastic course and it’s surprising what you can learn in four days, thick quick and even I will be saying it in my sleep!.
The course itself is structured but flexible if you are a complete beginner like me. Nothing was too much for Dave. By day four I mastered the ceiling which before the course I was adamant I’d never be able to!!!
Money well spent and I would highly recommend learn to plaster!!!
Thank you for been so patient Dave!!!!

Becca McGuire Wilson

Matthew Warren Oldham

Amazing what you can learn in 4 days! Dave is a fantastic instructor (and I’ve known quite a few) who know his subject inside out. He’s also clearly refined the course over a number of years to get the pace and content exactly right. I leave feeling confident that I can now achieve at least the same standard I’ve previously paid others for. Give it a go.

Lorna Hargreaves Huddersfield

Aug 2018…This is an absolutely amazing course and if I can do it anyone can! Dave is an amazing teacher tells you exactly what you need to know and how to correct any mistakes you make, being 5’1 I was very sceptical of actually being able to plaster and after 4days on this course I can now say that I can! I was absolutely gutted that this course finished so quickly as I had an excellent time and even though my travel time was long, I would do it all over again! Thank you so much for your help Dave I will definitely be recommending this to everyone.

July 2018…Only on day 2 absolutely loving it, didn’t know anything now want my own tools, I’m a yoga teacher where did that come from, so therapeutic built a wall with a window, plastered a wall and a ceiling wow.

simon alker Leeds

July 2018…This is simply a great course. You start it and you can’t plaster. You finish it and you can. It’s that simple. I’m not the most handy of men and so to be able to plaster is great. Dave is a great teacher and knows his stuff. He passes all of his knowledge on to you, ask anything you like, no matter how daft it seems and you will get a knowledgable and clear answer. I really can’t recommend it enough. I now know all about thick, quick and even. I know when to walk away. I also have a shiny trowel, which I am strangely proud of. Rather handily I also learnt a great tip for buttering toast with cold butter.

Zaheer Riaz Beverley

June 2018…Thought I’d do this course for a bit of DIY at home but was not expecting to be able to plaster at the standard that I came out with.

Dave is a great teacher and fills you with confidence as you go. His tips and tricks that he knows from the industry are a huge plus.

I did my first bedroom at home (including ceiling) this weekend and can say that I would pay for someone to do it at that standard.

Thanks learn to plaster…
