The NGPP is hosting its first ever international event in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on October 1st and 2nd, 2010. See the attached PDF's for full details. All are welcome, both Guild and non-Guild members.
The Friday session is a full-day hands-on class training installers to work with various high end materials and gain skills in table trimming, templating and pasting cleanly. This class is limited to the first 24 registrants at a cost of $150 – that’s less than half a day’s work for most of us.
Saturday will be a fast paced program with demonstrations of tips and techniques covering all aspects of the trade from proper removal and wall prep to commercial and high-end. There will also be a tradeshow with professional hand tools not previously sold in Canada as well as the opportunity to see and try out different pasting machines, lasers, tables etc. Access to this show is only $50 and is free for Guild members; you are guaranteed to get back that cost many times over in what you will learn, along with discounts and product samples.
Additionally, there is a session for design professionals called ‘Specify With Confidence!’ to assist in learning about different types of wallcovering, measuring and estimating accurately, the aesthetics of pattern and seam balance and in communicating with installers. Cost for this class is $50 and class space is limited.
To register for any of these sessions, go to www.ngpp.org and click on the link under ‘upcoming events’.
