Transcript

I’m Gary Blackburn, Plaster Demonstrator for British Gypsum. I cover Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

How did you get into plastering?

I got into plastering – I went to a careers meeting at school and he was talking about the construction industry and various trades. And he said plastering, and I thought that sounds alright and I’ve never looked back since.

What’s the best thing about being a plasterer?

Job satisfaction

What’s your most memorable job and why?

I did quite a big fibrous job, that’s the ornate plastering, on an old wall and one of the ceilings that had fallen down. We had to repair that and make a new one, so we fixed all that.

Who inspired you / taught you to be a plasterer?

I worked with quite a few blokes whilst I was serving my apprenticeship. The first one retired so obviously he knew quite a bit, and then I worked with various others throughout my apprenticeship.

What’s your favourite power tool?

Mixer. I love my mixer!
