Decorative Plaster & Running Mould Masterclass
We’re delighted that Sean Wheatley will be running our Decorative Plaster & Running Mould Masterclasses over the winter. Those of you who have already visited will know that he is a very experienced craftsman who has worked on some of the most prestigious properties in the country.
Sean has worked as a plasterer for 40 years, starting with modern materials and for the last 30 years concentrating on traditional methods, materials and decorative plasterwork. He has also been involved in the preparation of reports, surveys and methodologies regarding the conservation and restoration of historic plasterwork in listed and historic buildings. Sean gives demonstrations, PowerPoint presentations and teaching sessions on RICS/SPAB courses and is committed to passing on his knowledge; he has now put six apprentices through college – two of whom still work with him, and a seventh apprentice starting in September 2021. Sean and his team were winners of the FPDC Plaisterers Award for solid Internal Plasterwork 2013 for the work carried out following the devastating fire in Dartmouth on a Grade II* listed building, and again in 2014 for the restoration of a Grade I listed Devon manor house.
We can only accommodate 10 delegates per session and the cost for the day will be £150.00 each plus VAT. This covers materials used, a buffet lunch and refreshments during the day, a basic PPE pack and a comprehensive data stick containing information on the topic. This is a full-day course from 9 am to 4.30 pm; please arrive ten minutes early to check in.
The day is being presented as a Masterclass and will include the following:
• Running a mould on the bench
• Running a mould in-situ
• Finish coat plaster
Although offered as a Masterclass/Workshop we will endeavour to provide opportunities for individuals to participate in aspects of the demonstrations throughout the day as much as practically possible.
