Painting & Decorating is an area of DIY that most people will attempt without any previous experience. So why do our course? Our instuctor will teach you all the tricks of the trade so you get that professional finish (like a nice crisp line when cutting in). He will help you choose the right equipment for the job (this will include the choice of paint & paper) and will reduce the time spent on the job.

Many people under-estimate this discipline at their peril. Learn to do it right the first time!
