Skilled in all aspects of plastering; both fibrous and traditional lime producing in-situ mouldings, our expert craftsmen, from our workshop in Gloucestershire, use methods practised for centuries to hand make all of the mouldings which are made using plaster of paris with hessian (canvas) and wooden lath used to provide strength and durability.

Over the years our projects have varied from delicate, minor repairs to full reinstatements, we work closely with our clients, offering advice and ideas to manufacture new architectural designs, along with producing original items to suit the exact requirements.
