The Marmo Training Centre

Our new Venetian Plaster training centre is located in the heart of the Midlands. From here we offer a range of courses, from the Introductory Course that is perfect if you are just getting started and they range right the way up to our Advanced and 1-2-1 Courses. These show some of the more technical skills and finishes that you can use on your next projects – think clock faces and liquid metal finishes.

We use only the best products for our training and you’ll understand how each product works by the time you finish one of our courses.

The cultural heritage of Italy is reflected in Novacolour’s attention to detail. The decorative finishes that you will learn are reminiscent of handcrafted Italian excellence and invite a world of design potential. Novacolor’s range of products offer an amazing choice of options that we will use; from colour, texture, layers and even finishes like Verdigris and Liquid Metal.

You’ll create a range sample boards before moving into the booths, and you’ll be able to take these away with you to show prospective clients.
