Getting to grips with digital murals
In a recent edition, we heard from Select member, Simon Thompson, about his work with Vista Digital. Inspired by this, and recommendations from more of their fellow members, Kennie Mackender and Mark Latimer decided to try out the Dulux Academy and these innovative new products for themselves.
The 1 day 'Digital Murals and Feature Walls' course provides you with all the information and techniques to install a range of products, including the one-piece wallpaper from Vista Digital. This is the ideal course for those looking to take their wallpapering skills to the next level and explore new opportunities.
It was great to hear from both Mark and Kennie just how valuable they found their time on the course. Kennie told us, "No matter how many questions I could ask or how much I know, I always come away from the academy knowing more."
Mark echoed this sentiment and was keen for more members to share this experience. "If you get a spare day this is a day well spent, forget wallpapers, digital murals are the way forward. I cannot think of better value for money than this course for us Select Decorators, you may lose a day working but you will make that up with this product." We're also glad to hear they were well looked after throughout the day by the Academy team!
"The day starts with a bacon sarnie followed by pizza and chips for lunch and cake for afternoon tea, with as many cups of tea, coffee and soft drinks as you can drink."
Simply put by Kennie, "I ask myself why, when we have all this knowledge at our disposal, more members don't take advantage of it."
