Summer Open Day

It's amazing how quickly events come and go. In fact our free seminar in August was fully booked within just a few hours of publicising it. Therefore, we thought we would give you a bit of advanced warning about our Open Day:

Saturday, September 13th at our base in Beaconsfield, 10.00 am - 2.30 pm

Range of new mouldings on show in DIYframing shop.

The showroom will be open, with the full new range of mouldings, kit and other materials to browse through. As well as the full product range available for purchase, there will be special reductions on a range of items (details to be released nearer to the event). In addition we will be setting bargain prices on ex-demonstration tools and special offers on selected materials such as moulding packs.

High points of these days are always the FREE seminars and demonstrations. This year we have a guest presenter in David Wilkie. He is one of the UK's leading framers, having won several prizes for his beautifully designed and created pieces. He will be talking visitors through his design ideas and the techniques he used, as a preview of the two master classes he will be leading in October 2008.

Each presentation will last about 30 minutes, with time set aside for questions after. In order to take advantage of these seminars, you will need to book seats in advance. Places will be limited to 30 seats per session.
