Massive shout out to Andy at the Goldtrowel Academy. Attended 5 Day Venetian Plastering Course. Did my research like others that have left reviews on here, decided to take the plunge to add another string to my bow. Completed a shed load of finishes on this intensive course and to be perfectly truthful it blew me away. Great Company to train with and great opportunity to put good meterage on the walls. Professional and knows his craft. In a nutshell, if you are looking to upskill and learn venetian plastering then these guys are the proper deal. All the best Richie.

I just finished the 2 week plastering course with Shane. Going from zero plastering experience to now being confident in most plastering tasks, I cannot recommend this course enough. Shane explained everything very well with clear demonstrations and if there was any ever doubt he would make sure I understood it by the end of the day. I now have a great foundation of plastering knowledge to build on in the future. 100% worth every penny. 5 Stars.

Big thank you to Goldtrowel.
I sent one of my labourers on the two day weekend plastering course to get the basics of plastering under his belt. I thought it would be a quicker learning curve than getting my plasterers to teach him. He has come back saying he thoroughly enjoyed the hands on training and I have seen huge improvements in his work. He shows a greater understanding of timing, cleanliness and techniques.
Undoubtably the best training money can buy. I attended 2 training courses at Goldtrowell 20 years ago. I was previously selling computer software and wanted a career change. I now run a successful damp & timber treatment and structural waterproofing business. 20 years later the quality in all aspects of the training has not changed. I could not recommend it enough and we need more people going through this training centre to deal with the shortfall of good plasterers.

I have just completed the 10 day Venetian course with Andy, if your looking to learn this is the place to come, working with the best materials with a real hands on experience, Andy was a fantastic teacher and pushes you to get as much out of the course as you can in the time your there. The after care you get from this course is first class knowing you have that experience to call on once you leave is fantastic thanks again to Andy and goldtrowel for the great 10 days . Hoping to get back for the micro cemet course in the new year

Just spent 10 days with Andy Marshall on the Venetian course. The knowledge Andy knows on all types of Venitain finishes is unbelievable. Their was no holding back from day one Andy had us all on a full wall by the afternoon & by the end of the week we were all producing some quality finishes . The 2nd week progressed on to even bigger walls and different styles with metallic paints and dyes 🤩 it was brilliant .From knowing absolute nothing to producing eye catching Venitian polished walls I was proud of myself & all this is down to Andy and his way off teaching and his sense off humour and long my journey in to the Venitian world . I canít recommend him and his courses enough soooo glad I done it . Thanks Andy and the goldtrowel team . Best regards Paul

I attended the 5 day polished plastering course taught by Andy and honestly I have no words that describe the experience I had.

To have someone who knows so much be able to teach you in depth and to a high standard in 5 days is only a credit to Andy and those at Gold Trowel.

The time he takes to show you, to answer questions, to help with any tiny aspect youíre unsure of. It was honestly by far the best experience I had and most certainly gives me the confidence to go back and do more courses with Andy at the helm!

Finally Iíd just like to thank Andy for taking the time to answer all questions, for working so hard to get materials delivered and for being one of the most genuinely nice guys i have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The whole experience of that week would not of been the same of it wasnít done with the passion and care that he has.

For anyone looking to tackle the Venetian plaster game, thereís only one man, one company to use. Andy Marshall, Gold Trowel.

I attended the 5 day plastering course. The course was tutored by Les, whose a top man and tutor, with Doug and Andy assisting on certain facets.

I did a lot of investigation into finding the right course for me and selected the Goldtrowel course due to intensive program which covered everything I was looking for.

If you're looking for a course led by motivated, experienced professionals with patience, even with novices like me, then look no further this is the course for you.

Every aspect of the course is initially demonstrated by the tutor and then when we were undertaking the task the tutors circulated offering advice and guidance as necessary.

It's a great environment to learn new skills or undertake additional training for experienced tradesmen.

I'm missing the team already!

Well, where do i start? I am so fortunate to have stumbled across these fabulous products, Andy Marshal & Goldtrowel Academy. I am 56 years old & wanted a change of direction, one that i could hopefully enjoy for the remainder of my working life. I have been in the stone industry for nearly 30 years, am part Italian & unbelievably, have never heard of these amazing products before. My time at Goldtrowel has been absolutely life changing for me & one which i will never forget. Andy Marshalls knowledge, experience, determination & drive for these products is truly inspirational. I did a lot of research before the course to find the best one & Goldtrowel kept standing out head & shoulders above the rest. Now that i have completed a 10 day Venetian plastering & a 2 day microcement course, i can honestly say, without question, that it was the right one for me. These materials offer huge opportunities to anyone who is willing to listen & learn something new & can lead in so many different directions. At Goldtrowel there are students linked to so many different trades on these courses & who are quite literally from all parts of the United Kingdom. The thing that makes Goldtrowel stand out though, is Andy Marshalls unrivaled knowledge for the vast array of building trade courses on offer. He lives & breathes Goldtrowel & has literally years of experience within the building trade. He is the most passionate & experienced instructor i have ever had the pleasure to meet & will quite literally, change your life for the better. He will not only answer difficult & challenging questions but will demonstrate the easiest & best way to do things with ease. Once you have completed your chosen course, Andy will then go on to support & guide you through any questions or challenges you may have in the future. I witnessed this for myself during my time at Goldtrowel & was so impressed with his knowledge, professionalism & work ethic. I can honestly say that i enjoyed every second of my time at Goldtrowel & will undoubtedly be revisiting as soon as possible for further training. Thank you so much Andy. All the best. Mario.

Finished a great Microcement Course with Andy and what a top fella. I did my research. Sent a few emails to various centres and to be honest just really glad I went to the man at Goldtrowel. Have seen on FB various people controlling and deleting positive stuff about their set up. Shame really because in my professional opinion you cannot go wrong.
All I say is speak to Andy and he will guide you and by the way you do get to complete very sizeable areas on your course. Cheers Danny Boy

I would like to thank Les and the team at Goldtrowel for an excellent 6 weeks of plastering training. Having walked into Goldtrowel with no experience at all, I walked out of Goldtrowel feeling confident to take on any wall or ceiling.
Les was a great instructor that was always ready to answer any questions you had. I think i must have given him a few grey hairs to start with, But after his advise the course became so much easier..thank you all for putting up with me for 6 weeks..
would recommend this course to anyone thinking of changing careers..
