ADVANCED PICTURE FRAMING

Designed for people who already have a basic knowledge of picture framing.

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.
