At the Stucco & Stucco studio we teach the fine art of polished plastering.

We run a 5 day intensive training course once a month, places are limited. The course is aimed at individuals that wish to learn new skills. The course is hands on, friendly and informal but structured.

Our approach is to create a relaxed environment where you will enjoy learning. At the end of the week you will leave the course with a good understanding, knowledge and the confidence to take on your own project.

You will not be an expert, professional or qualified! But you will be able to achieve some of the basic easier finishes, like anything else you will get better with practice.

The course is run by Andy Robinson. Andy runs Stucco & Stucco, has extensive experience in polished plastering and has trained in Cornwall, London & Venice.

We know our craft and actively work with polished plaster on a day to day basis. We exhibit regularly at shows like Grand Designs & the Homebuilding & Renovating Show.
