I charge 35 GBP an hour from my door, plus materials and travel at cost. For reasonably straightforward pargets I can give you a fixed price if you prefer.
For 50 GBP plus travel, I give a Photoshop illustrated talk on pargeting, covering subjects like the history of pargeting, types of pargeting and materials used.
Please feel free to phone or email for free advice.
I trained as a plasterer, worked as a conservation plasterer and then learned to do freehand modelling on the Mastro (master craftsman) course in San Servolo, Venice with the support of the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust.
In 2002 I started my business in Suffolk, England creating new pargets and conserving old plaster.
My illustrious students worked assiduously for a few minutes before realising that parget is remarkably like making mud pies.
