Open Day

Our Open Days have become a very popular feature of the calendar.  Our summer open day will be September 15th 2007, at our Woodlands Farm headquarters, Beaconsfield. It will run from 10.00 am - 4.00 pm, with free parking available on site. As always there will be a number of special features and attractions.

SEMINAR:  Add Fantastic Features To Your Framing  If the creative side of framing appeals to you, or you are looking for some new ideas for presenting your artwork, or you want a few extra ideas to offer your customers, then this seminar could be for you.  It covers a number of elements associated with the more inventive and dramatic side of framing.  Once you get the hang of these separate elements, then using them in combination can have some outstanding results.

The session will run twice during the Open Day: 11.00 am – 12.00 am; 1.30 pm – 2.30 pm.  There will be plenty of time after each session for questions and for you to ask about other aspects of framing. 

The seminars will illustrate several ideas for making your framed pieces look stunning. Three broad areas will be covered:

  1. Slips, fillets and second frames
  2. Colour lines and fills
  3. Shadows and depth.


As well as guiding you through the basic principles involved in each of these, there will be detailed demonstrations of:

  • Creating art lining on mounts using a lining pen and acrylic paint / inks
  • Adding a slip to a mount
  • Creating shadow mounts

Some audience participation may be invited so get there early for a front seat.  The ideal follow up for the session would be to join the next session of our full Custom Framing course running in Beaconsfield.  Places at the seminars are free, but they must be reserved by contacting, Judy, either with email: (marked OPENDAY SEMINARS) or telephone 0800 801061
