Completed a 10 Day Venetian Plastering Course with Andy at Goldtrowel. Before I pursued the course I made various enquiries with other alleged centres. Spoke to Andy who put my mind at rest and reassured me prior to booking. Well what a topman. He knows his craft and for those looking around out there to learn this amazing stuff look no further. He is there at the end of a phone he loves his venetian and he certainly shares his passion and knowledge throughout the course. Did so much and the list is endless. Go and learn with them folks. All the very best Dave

I have just passed my City and Guilds in Plastering. Shane, the instructor made the course enjoyable and challenging. He is able to adapt his teaching to suit the individual and clearly has years of experience he is willing to share. Gold Trowel is a great place to train and all the staff are friendly and welcoming.

Many thanks for the experience and great atmosphere.

Completed a six week nvq level 2 bricklaying course here. The course was fantastic all practical and hands on. And the network of people helping me through the nvq afterwards was second to none. Would strongly recommend this college to anyone looking to get qualified in the trade.

Embarked on a 4 Week NVQ Level 2 Tiling Course with Goldtrowel using my ELCAS funding from Ministry Of Defence. Doug is a top Instructor right on the top of his game. Always there to help advise and answer all questions. Great course has really set me up doing this course. There were 7 others from MOD and it was just great to learn New skills and most importantly get qualified. Recommend Goldtrowel for sure. All the Best Cal

Been a Bricklayer for many years and need my NVQ Level 2 In Brickworks. Did an experienced worker route with Goldtrowel due to the fact I needed to get the ticket. Well Mick Pearce my Assessor was a blinding bloke, and to be honest when I left Goldtrowel, I realised just how good a Company they are. So in a nutshell if you want to get qualified just go to them. Absolutely the nuts. Cheers big Mick, Johnny Boy.

Just recently finished a 5 day venetian plastering course and was surprised on how much you get to learn and hands on experience you get. Putting on full walls creating great samples, a great course and Andy the boss man know his product and shows you how to be creative and what you can achieve, top man all round and clearly loves his job and made the course the best I've been on, met some crack fellow plasterers. GOLDTROWEL is the place to be to learn new skill in the trade.

Cliff Wright
Just completed the 5 day Venetian course and it was all I had expected and more . The course covers so many finishes and products that it could be overwhelming if it wasn’t for Andys way of teaching .
I felt everything was taught and explained well and I have came away from it with a passion and a desire to peruse Venetian plaster further .

I chose Gold Trowel because it offers more than just sample boards and I’m so glad I did because the difference between doing a sample board and an actual wall is night and day .
If you are reading this because you are doing your research on where you would like to go ,then look no further .

Completed 3 courses with Goldtrowel in 12 month period. Why did I go there in the first place? Did my checking out spoke to a few people that had been there on social media and that did it for me.
Firstly completed 6 Week NVQ Level 2 Plastering Course and that was what made me return. Shane great instructor and made the course enjoyable and at the same time I had to work hard as I had no experience. Got my Qualification and set myself up in April 2018 and now working flat out.
Also did the 2 week Tiling course at Goldtrowel in August 2018 to add on to my business as few Tilers are where I live. That course was great to and Doug was brilliant.
Lastly I Completed the 2 week Venetian Plastering Course at Goldtrowel and that was a banging course full on and I did I reckon 64 samples 4 walls and that was the Icing on the cake.Cheers Andy top bloke.
Big Thumbs up to all there at Goldtrowel

I had completed a small amount of venetian plastering prior to signing up for the 5 day course, but knew there was a lot I could improve on. After looking at the options from other venetian plastering workshops, I realised that Gold Trowel were the only facility offering a ‘real world’ situation, rather than doing a bunch of sample boards, that don’t really prepare you for anything but doing sample boards.

At Gold Trowel you actually plaster complete walls to prepare for a real world situation, whether that is a home project or as a profession. You learn about the product and how to optimise your time using that product.

As well as completing a 4mx2.4m wall with venetian plaster, we also completed a lot of samples to take away, using many of the other products offered by Venezia Stucco, as well as trying out some of the San Marco products too.
The course is full on, utilising product drying times to prepare for more samples to be made ready, although the general vibe is positive and fun.

I cannot recommend this course enough, to anyone looking to learn how to apply a variety of venetian plasters, to a professional standard. I will be returning to the centre soon because there is always more to learn when you have a tutor who is passionate about imparting their knowledge to anyone who really wants to learn this artform.

A huge thanks to Lee and Andy for the great organisation and course - from my first exchange with Goldtrowel I felt confident signing up, and it exceeded my expectations. I wanted to learn tadelakt for a personal project. I am not a plasterer and had never held a trowel before. I learnt so much both under Andys clear guidance and from the other experienced participants on the course. I have come away confident I will be able to use tadelakt in my renovation project and I cant wait to get started! This course is suited to all skill levels, and Andy manages to keep everyone challenged even in a mixed group like ours.

Just finished 5 day course with Andy. I can literally say -this course has been the most enjoyable learning experience I had in a very long time. I have not stopped smiling. Andys enthusiasm, expertise, passion and honesty has been truly inspirational. This in itself made the course so satisfyingly challenging and totally exceeded my expectations. I cannot believe I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. so would like to say another big thank you to Andy for totally wowing me.. respect bro thanks for just doing you! I would personally recommend to do this course Period! Anyone who is ready to want to absorb and learn what this man has to offer.. you will come away amazed!!! Luke (Bristol)

Me and Matt have just completed the 10 day Venetian course and it was everything we’d expected it to be and much much more! Andy’s a really great bloke, really knows what he’s talking about when it comes to Venetian plasters, the course it’s self is literally 100% hands on and we couldn’t believe the amount of meterage we got to do! Any questions we had about the work andy was happy to answer simply and also to explain it so you really do understand what it is your asking about. During the 10 days we were there we noticed every time we were set doing are work Andy was constantly answering the phone giving advise about work to people that had already been on the course, so he clearly has a great customer care service.

All in all we cant fault this place it really is 10/10! We’ll definitely be keeping in contact with Andy and no doubt be coming back for a top up day or two!
