Nick Caldwell GCF

Nick is an experienced framer running his own business, Warrington Framing & Arts, in Cheshire. Nick’s first foray into framing was in the summer of 2006. Having had a life-long interest in art and sketching he wanted to explore how easy (or otherwise!) it might be to frame his own work and perhaps build a small commercial business in the margins of a long career in UK Government, latterly as technical trainer. Nick enrolled on DIY Framing’s Business Development week and left knowing there was a fulfilling and perhaps lucrative future in framing and fine art reproduction.

Nick spent the next 2 years accumulating technical/industry knowledge and the equipment to allow him to launch Warrington Framing & Arts in 2008. He continues to operate the business from a home workshop offering free local collection and delivery for his customers. Nick also works with local artists and photographers to promote their talents. This extends to image capture, editing and reproduction using large format giclee printing and complements the picture framing by enabling a ‘photo to wall’ offering.

Nick is a Fine Art Trade Guild Certified Framer (GCF) and keen to share his knowledge of all elements of framing to help those wishing to explore its potential.
