Whether you’re involved in a DIY building project or just want to try your hand at a skilled trade – these plastering & bricklaying courses are for you. In true building style the days are informal, being great fun but informative.

With a maximum of 4 students per course, plenty of individual tuition & time to discuss your particular project is assured.

Why spend 4 or 5 days on a building course when, due to the small sizes of our groups, we can cover the same techniques in 3 days?

So you have a house that’s in need of a little renovation? No problem you say, ‘I’ll get a builder in’. It is only then you realise how much this may cost.

Being able to plaster or brick lay could mean the whole DIY project can be carried out by yourself without having to rely on a builder.

Attending a course at the plastering workshop could not only make this possible but will provide a great sense of achievement. You just have to read our comments page!

Great course given by Rob. A lot of knowledge and techniques shared. Teaches very well and breaks down everything so it is very understandable and easy to learn.

I did the 3 day Bricklaying course with some very limited experience of building small walls and planters Rob was very thorough (and patient) in demonstrating the whole process from start to finish.There is ample time to get to grips with laying a simple course and corner as well as bricking up to a window frame and then building a pillar. I can't recommend this course (and the Breakfast rolls) enough for those that know nothing to those that have some experience. Thanks Rob

I have a small blockwork shed to build and watched countless you tube videos, which were all good. What I was missing though was hands on practice and expert knowledge about bricklaying. This course and Robs expert tuition have made a huge difference. I would thoroughly recommend it. Thanks Rob
