I have had such an AWESOME week learning Venetian plastering from Andy. What can I say other than that the man has skills and his passion for teaching and sharing his knowledge is evident in the time and energy he invests in every single person on his course.
The number of finishes you learn in a week is just unbelievable. Andy shares everything he knows about the products, what can be achieved, and there are no restrictions to using the products to add your own artist touch. Andy let's you learn from your mistakes, which is brilliant but he explains very patiently where we could have done things differently and gives you the space to redo them.
Unlike most other courses, Andy doesn't get you to buy his products and ensures that you only get what you really need and doesn't let you waste your hard earned money.
Met some great people and a week flew by. I'm sure most of us will be back for more advanced lessons with Andy. Cannot recommend this course enough to those who want to dive into the world of Venetian plastering.

Just spent an month on the tiling course and couldnít be happier! Doug my tutor has extensive knowledge in the industry and was more then happy to share his insights and advice on how to tile correctly and to go forward as a professional in the trade! The course had a lot of theory but no sooner had the theory been explained you were put in your bay to put it into practice could not recommend this course enough! Shaine and Andy the other tutors there were a good laugh and source of encouragement will definitely be looking to do more courses here in the future!

Completed my 4 week NVQ in plastering end of January, and i must say i have learnt far more than i expected.
Shane the tutor is a top bloke and also an excellent teacher with an abundance of knowledge. He delivers training in a clear and professional manner, yet still manages to include good humour alongside plenty of patience.
All in all Gold Trowel is a very welcoming training centre, with friendly tutors and i highly recommend to beginners or those wishing to up skill.
Thank you to all at Gold Trowel & a big thank you to my main man Shane!

2 Day weekend Krend Course attended August 2019. Taken me a while to do this review. Went to these guys and it was worth every penny travelling down from Shipley to Essex. Andy really is the ultimate In Render Systems and Silicone. Having done many Monocouche and Silicone jobs since leaving Goldtrowel, I just cannot praise there set up enough. For those wanting to achieve something a little unique go and do this course. Recommend Goldtrowel and most importantly the Instructor Andy for his passion knowledge and support. He is always their to guide you, trust me on that one. Cheers Jona.

Donít know where to start!
Been doing courses with Andy for the past 6-7 years.
1st was a week krend course which was amazing, loads of big walls so you get to practice on walls you will be doing in everyday life.
2nd was the 5 day Venetian course, this was my favourite. You can never stop learning about this stuff, every time you think you master it Andy will show you more designs and pattens you can do. If you want a challenge this is the one!!
3rd was the micro cement course! Bit like Venetian course but can do so much more with including floors!!

Andy, Lee, Doug and everyone else at Goldtrowl thank you for the continued support and all the advice over the last 7 years.

Andyís the man and dam he knows his stuff, wants you to learn as much as you can while your there and when youíve left heís only a phone call away as donít think you will be able to help yourself wanting more, I will be picking his brains on future projects. An amazing teacher who likes to listen too!
Looking forward to doing another course... I Canít recommend more highly!!!

I completed the 5 day venetian plastering course during 9th - 13th of Dec 2019
Before starting this course i checked out all the reviews and wondered weather all the praise for Andy and the centre was actually genuine... Safe to say all praise was deserved the knowledge and teaching ability can not be faulted i came away with enough knowledge to carry out some little jobs i would recommend 10 day course as you won't want to stop! Great course and met some great guys thank you again Andy

I did the 5 day Venetian course. I sceptical before booking what I could learn in that time. But I can honestly say what Andy teaches you and the work he lets you do his knowledge and passion is fantastic. I left feeling confident in doing many aspects of Venetian and the after care is second to none. Iíll be back to do further courses next year.

Having been to gold trowel twice, firstly for the 6 week NVQ plastering course and most recently for the week long tadelakt course, I cannot speak highly enough of Andy and the other instructors, Shane and Doug. The course layout is excellent and the materials available to students is plentiful.
The aftercare however is what struck me the most, Andy is a wealth of knowledge as too are Shane and Doug, they will always help you out if you have any problems whilst on a job post course, I have called them a few times and it has helped me out a great deal. They genuinely care how you get on after the course.
I can highly recommend the tadelakt course to anyone interested in the venetian plastering trade, either for your own benefit or for work. Andy lives and breathes the trade and what he doesnt know about it isnt worth knowing.
Thanks for a great week Andy.

I was a bit hesitant on booking this course due to only being 2 days long. But soon after meeting andy, it became quite clear he was very passionate and had a lot knowledge on the courses he teachís & the products they use. He gave us a very detailed discussion at the start and through the practical ensuring we had all the correct information we will need. Great guy and very enthusiastic! Definitely worth the money.

Completed venetian polished plaster course back in April of this year. Was extremely impressed with how much there is to offer on 1 site. Tiling courses brick laying plastering, and renders. Andy knows his products,he has alot of experience and knowledge which he gets across with enthusiasm. I was so happy with venetian course I rebooked myself onto the k-rend course which I completed in June. Both instructed by Andy and both in small groups so nothing was over looked.
Would definitely recommend gold trowel to anyone looking to get into a wet trade.

Completed my NVQ plastering course with goldtrowel during an intense 4 weeks - now i am fully qualifed to work onsite, Andy Marshall is not only a top top training instructor but he also a gentleman who would go to earths end for you at anytime - the training facilities and support is second to none - other centres i have visited in the past simply dont compare to Goldtrowel.
So, if you want to gain a qualification in construction industry go to Goldtrowel highly recommended!

Attended the 5 day tiling course & 2 day plastering course.
My aim was to learn the basics of Tiling and plastering so I was confident enough to do a bit around my own property. However, I got so much more from this course than just that, the experience and knowledge that the instructors provide is of the highest quality.
They are so knowledgeable in each of their trades that they are able to provide insight into why things are done a certain way, allowing a good foundation of learning for the students.
After doing these short courses, Iíd 100% go back to Goldtrowel to learn more.
