Wallpapering Training Courses


The wallpapering course provides an in-depth understanding of how to apply wallpaper to walls and other surfaces. Wallpapering is an underestimate job with many untrained novice DIY’ers ending up with misaligned edges or worse, wallpaper with many noticeable bubbles and gouges. The decorator only needs to have one misaligned joint to occur or mix up an incorrect proportion of adhesive mixture, and the rest is well, not so great.

The wallpapering course content and duration can vary from one provider to another. However, in general, taking a comprehensive wallpapering course, whether it is for two days or five, will equip you with the training required to produce a professional finished wallpapering project. Wallpapering courses that are longer than 2 days are usually geared for the novice who might need more time to develop their confidence, skills and dexterity.

This is a hands-on, practical wallpapering course. Most learning providers will provide tools and materials but you will be required to wear suitable clothing and protective footwear (preferably steel toed), which is compulsory.
