Success Stories - Women's Plastering

Plastering Course Student Debbie once again shows how women always do excellent plastering.

Womens plastering course

Plastering course student Deborah Hatton is a classic example of how women are exceptional learners and can put the guys to shame. Throughout the time that Debbie was with us on the Essentials Plastering Course we were amazed at how effortless she made plastering look. Debbie remained calm, composed, in control and what was amazing was how clean she remained at the end of the day. Debbie looked as if she had simply done a days shopping down King Street."

This approach meant that Debbie produced exceptional work and we are in no doubt that this will continue through to her work when she retires with her husband Max to France.

Here is what Debbie had to say about her experience at The DIY School.

"I booked the Plastering Course and my husband the Bricklaying Course for Garden Walls, as we are planning on renovating our retirement home in France. Before arriving at The DIY School I was very apprehensive about what I was letting myself in for. I shouldn’t have worried.As soon as I arrived I was made to feel at ease from being greeted by the delightful Molly the receptionist, to meeting the guys I would be training with and our very patient trainer Mike."


"The first day was a bit challenging as it was putting up plasterboard but I was given great advice by Mike and also lots of encouragement from the other men on the course.Once we started on the plastering it became great fun and I can honestly say I looked forward to each day. From learning to plaster walls and ceilings (without any landing on your head) to repairing and making the mix."

"I can thoroughly recommend this course to other Ladies as once you have got through the door on the first day you will enjoy yourself and also learn a great skill that will save you money!"
