Want to learn to make fibrous cornice!

Hi all
I have been fitting fibrous cornice for the last 16 years in Sussex ( i live in worthing West Sussex) Surrey, Hampshire, Kent and London. I am getting more work now as i help out a firm i used to work for atm, but the trouble is getting decent cornice. Some are made too thin and some were made on a wobbly table ( mould changes throughout the 3 metres) So i would like to learn how to make cornice and do some for myself. I know it can be made better as i have fitted some from 2 companies which made the job so much easier and more importantly a good finish
The trouble is there are no courses that teach this now so if anyone knows someone willing to teach me, for money of course, then please let me know.

Hi there GT, im up in liverpool so probably to far for you to travel?
but if not im sure i can show you a few things depending on what you want to learn and your time frame available etc.
its not something you will learn in a week. You can learn to cast easily in a week but to make cornice from scratch etc is alot longer.
if your on Facebook/instagram add me on there
