It will cover a range of topics, including how to use Dulux Trade’s new water-based Quick Dry Gloss and Undercoat range to get perfect results every time, as well as mastering the ultimate wood-care finish.”

Every attendee will receive a free decorator’s pack on the day, which includes paint samples, a branded hat and gloves.
