Hodkin & Jones Welcome a Brand New Team Member

Hodkin and Jones are pleased to welcome a new full time member of staff, Bradley Ludlam, after he recently completed an NVQ apprenticeship with the company.

Bradley’s Fibrous Plaster Journey

Bradley has worked at the company alongside his father, who has many years’ experience within the fibrous plaster mouldings industry, both in a workshop environment and out on sites. This has allowed Bradley to gain vast amounts of valuable knowledge in a short period of time, and he is continuing to acquire skills in a number of techniques that can only be learned from experienced craftsmen within this field.

Bradley will now go on to learn all aspects of the fibrous plaster industry, including:

  • Matching to existing
  • Taking templates
  • Producing mouldings
  • Creating decorative cornices
  • Learning to read and understand technical drawings

All of this knowledge will mean that Bradley can eventually carry out bespoke restoration projects which require specialised craftsmen to restore plaster mouldings back to their original splendour.

Bradley will be a valuable asset to Hodkin & Jones and we hope he will be with us for many years to come just like his father.
