Doncaster College Painting and Decorating students were treated to a master class by one of the country’s leading decorators when Andrew Holland came to visit recently.

Andrew Holland is based in Chelmsford, Essex, and works both locally and internationally. Andrew is noted for his in depth knowledge of painting and decorating as well as faux and spray finishes. He likes to pass on his skills to up and coming young decorators. ‘I like to think I’m giving something back’ he says of his trips to different colleges up and down the country.

At Doncaster the focus was on replicating Italian marble and English oak using water based paints. The techniques that Andrew employed to replicate wood and marble finishes were intricate and involved but the finished results were exceptional and the students did a fine job of imitating the methods shown to them.

Painting is in Andrews’s blood and he followed his father’s footsteps into the profession. After over twenty years in the business and serving an ‘old school’ apprentice he has a natural desire to complete projects to an extremely high standard and this shows in his work.

Neil Preskey, Painting and Decorating lecturer at the College said ‘It’s great for students to see at first hand some of the techniques that can be used for work like this that they would not necessarily use in their day to day work.’
