The skills you need to frame your own pictures as a hobby or even a paying one!
This one-day course is designed for people who already have a basic knowledge of picture framing, either as keen hobbyists or who are perhaps new to the picture framing business. The course will help you to move forward and expand your knowledge to framing more complex or larger items with confidence.
Our friendly staff will pass on their expert knowledge of picture framing and guide you through each process. This course is limited to 4 students per instructor to ensure personal attention is given.
As advanced picture framing includes such a wide variety of skills, to ensure we are able to meet your requirements for this course, you will need to choose 4 first choice subjects and 4 second choice subjects to cover on the day (see application form).
Health and safety in the workshop is compulsory and therefore not an optional choice.
