Hi everyone, my name is Carl Melady and welcome to my website!

After many successful years as a self-employed plasterer in and around Long Eaton, I decided to take it a bit easier in my old age and teach people what I know.

So in September 2013, I opened up the very first and only D.I.Y plastering school right here in my home town of Long Eaton.

Why Learn with Carl?

If you’ve ever wanted to know & learn how the professionals do it, now is the perfect opportunity to do so.

My unique 3 day intensive plastering course is a fantastic introduction into the world of the internal plastering trade.

Forget watching 100’s of different & sometimes confusing Youtube videos, come and learn how to do it properly, hands on with one of Long Eaton’s most established & respected ex-plasterers.

And of course,I will be able to interact with you personally throughout the course…..something a Youtube video or a plastering dvd could never do.

Come and invest in yourself and learn an extremely rewarding and valuable new skill for life to give you the knowledge and the confidence to carry out work on your own property and potentially save yourself a bundle of cash…….and who knows it could even put you on the road to a new career working for yourself!

  • All Genders

  • Aged 18 or over

  • Existing tradespeople learning a new skill

  • D.I.Y enthusiast

  • No experience necessary

  • Hands-on solutions to common challenges

  • All materials and waste management included – no hidden costs

The course is open to everyone; all genders, near or far aged 18 yrs and over and whether you’re a keen D.I.Yer, a tradesperson or someone who has never picked up a trowel before in your life, don’t worry I will take you every step of the way.

If you’ve been looking around for a plasterer to carry out work at your property, why not come and learn to do it yourself?

You’ll be amazed at what you can learn and what I can teach you on my 3 day intensive plastering course.
