What our students say…

Great…loved it !!!

I think the course is great…it focuses on how it can cater for your needs as in = I needed to block door ways, re-build a garden wall and build a barbie of which I learnt all 3 in just 5 days. Brilliant the cost is fair and the equipment is everything you need and more. Will say though the web-site doesn’t do them justice as it needs to show more of what you can create and state in what space of time you CAN create this !! I will be promoting this company to my friends as I believe everyone who does this will be amazed of what they can gain. Basically I loved it! 🙂

Within three weeks I had plastered my bathroom!

I attended a two weekend DIYer course at the beginning of last year. I found it really fulfilling and I came away with the confidence to skim all the walls my bathroom – including the ceiling! You can see some photographs I took during the course here: I would certainly recommend going on this course!

Great teaching and very friendly.

They teach you about the products and tools with a very in depth talk while doing a demo so you learn how to mix and apply the products, they really do cover everything to do with plastering. They also sell all the tools you need for plastering I ended up buying the whole kit as it would safe me time and money great prices and high quality tools. Price for the course is very reasonable for what you learn in 4 weeks and the guys are very friendly made me feel at home from the first day and any questions I had they were able to answer them. Highly recommend silver trowel ltd other courses also available, I’ll be going back for sure.

Top teaching taught by top tradesmen

I took a 2 day Bricklaying course with Silver Trowel. In just 2 days I’d learnt trowel skills and laid several courses of brick. I would definitely recommend Silver Trowel. Whether you’ve been in the trade for years or never had a go Silver Trowel pitch the teaching to each persons level. Thank you Silver Trowel for helping me on my construction journey.

Really good practical learning experience!

Really good practical learning experience

Really enjoyed my time on the weekend plastering course over the 4 days (two weekends). Good down to earth teachers and a good group of other people who were all learning for their own reasons. I’m looking to come back and do some further training. Well worth the money

Fantastic, fun and full of support teaching an old dog a new trick…

This was my first experience of bricklaying and a complete contrast to the desk job that I had been doing for the previous thirty years. I had no idea what to expect when I arrived at Silver Trowel but was immediately put at ease and introduced to the other students. My instructor was brilliant and gave me so much encouragement, he was also very patient which helped me and to settle very quickly. By the second day I had built my first single brick right angles wall with column and was very pleased with it. During my third and fourth days I built a nine inch double skin wall with over hang feature and it looked very professional, I was very pleased with the skills I had mastered and the work that I had achieved in just four days at Silver Trowel. I can highly recommend Silver Trowel and would not hesitate to use them again if I decide to follow up with the plastering course.

Chris & Colin are Smooth operators

I recently completed my 5 weeks City & Guild certificate with Silver Trowel and I have to say, from start to finish – the whole experience was way way better than I originally expected. Colin and Chris (the dynamic duo) are the business. In true professional style they covered every module thoroughly, with a lot of patience and full support! From the unlimited free Tea (a lifesaver) to helping with mixing, cleaning, lifting, shovelling etc etc… Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure that I understood what I was doing and why I was doing it – helping to make this a fun 5 weeks as well as learning so much, including the RIGHT way to do it. For a down to earth, stress free learning experience – I would have no hesitation to recommend these guys. Hell I had so much fun, I was tempted to re do the whole 5 weeks! Thanks again to Chris and Colin for everything and for their ongoing support in advising me on certain situations that i come across and for answering any queries that i may have when working on my own!
