Venetian Plaster Training Course

Course length: 2 day

The beginning of the Venetian Plaster art form can be traced back to ancient Rome, where the craft of plastering reached new heights with the introduction of multi-layered plastering. This process remained essentially unchanged through two millennia. This process was rediscovered during the Italian Renaissance, acquiring the name ‘Marmorino’, which is still used today.

The craft has seen a resurgence in modern times, becoming a key interest of modern architects and interior designers who use the finish to provide a unique feel to both homes and commercial spaces.

Our comprehensive two day training course will introduce you to becoming a Venetian Plaster Craftsman and you will be joining an elite group of craftsmen who are supported and mentored by Dulux AcraTex.
