Course Information for Students

This hands-on course will provide you with an introductory insight into the basic principles of wallpapering.  It is ideal for those looking to take on a new DIY wallpapering project at home, or for those in a similar trade looking to expand their services.

There are no formal entry requirements for this experience – you just need a keen interest in developing your skills.

You will learn about health and safety around the home and what essential tools, materials and equipment are required to get you started.

Each week our DIY expert will provide step-by-step guidance – from preparation to application – in each of the following activities:

 1 – Preparing walls and application of lining paper

 2 – Application of blown vinyl to walls and ceilings

 3 – Application of pattern wallpaper and borders

 4 – Application of vinyl wall coverings

This course will be delivered on-site.

All materials will be included in the cost you pay.

Please note that you are likely to get messy, so consider wearing appropriate clothing.  You will be working within a practical environment so steel-capped safety shoes must be worn in the workshop at all times.

There are no assessment criteria – just observe, have a go and enjoy!

If you have your own desired project or design, please feel free to discuss this with the course facilitator.
