Wallpaper Masterclass

This is a two day course which covers all aspects of hanging wallpaper from the tools and equipment needed to different types of wallpaper available. The course will be mainly practical, and we will start off by looking at wall preparation and hanging simple papers and then work up to some advanced wallpaper techniques.

The course assumes that you have no knowledge of wallpapering but by the end of the course you will be able to measure up and wallpaper on your own house or carry out commercial work as part of your decorating business. The course instructor is Pete Wilkinson and he has over 30 years of decorating and teaching experience in the UK.
