This course is designed to give an insight to those people who are interested in taking up picture framing on a full-time basis, or thinking of opening their own business.
During your day with us, you will get a detailed insight into the art of picture framing. You will be shown demonstrations of each piece of equipment and then get hands on practical time. By the end of your day, you will have framed a small print with a double mount, glass, backing board, and have completely finished it off, by taping the back and adding hanging fittings. At the end of the day you will not yet be a framer, but you will have a good idea what being a professional framer is really about.
Before the practical elements of the course, you will be given a short talk on workshop safety, machine maintenance and the Fine Art Trade Guild's 5 Levels of Framing. (Framing Standards)
