How to become a Member

There are several ways by which prospective members can apply to join the Company, initially as a Freeman and then as a Liveryman. Traditionally, entitlement to admission to the Freedom of the Company was by Servitude and available to those who, having completed a full five year working apprenticeship, were released from their indentures by the Master Plasterer. Servitude has not been used for a number of years by the Company.

Admissions to the Freedom are now either by Patrimony, available to men or women aged 21 or over, whose fathers were already Freemen of the Company at the time of their birth, or by Redemption, for those who do not qualify through Patrimony and whose nomination is proposed and seconded by existing members of the Company.

Having successfully gained the Freedom of the City of London, Freemen of the Company may go on to apply to the Court of Assistants for election as Liverymen

The Plaisterers' Company thrives on the diversity and enterprise of its membership. On joining, Freemen and Liverymen are encouraged to actively support the Company and its endeavours whenever possible.
