Level 2

Plasterers mix and apply plaster to inside walls and ceilings; they may also apply cement or lime-based mixes to floors and outside walls, or do decorative work. Surface preparation is key to ensure that the first coat sticks to the material the wall is made of. Fibrous plasterers work with plaster that has short lengths of fibre added to hold it together while they are working on it. They make ornamental plasterwork and decorative panels by moulding and casting plaster in workshops. The finished pieces are then fixed onsite.

Fibrous plasterers may work from architects’ designs or copy pieces of plasterwork from artists’ drawings, or from photographs.
