New Dates - Masterclass Weekend in October

Why not take your mount cutting to the highest level?  David Wilkie (GCF) will be sharing his expertise and exceptional repertoire of practical skills during our Mount Cutting Master Class weekend in October 2013. (click for details of the course)

David WilkieDavid is one of the foremost, bespoke framers in the UK, winning, outright, seven Fine Art Trade Guild competitions. He has also been a finalist on eighteen occasions: no other framer has come close to that.

Make Your Framing the Very Best

Don’t be put off by the Master Class title: David has the knack of putting across ideas clearly and in ways that you know you can replicate. The real impact is that he shows you what a wide variety of styles and designs you can create just by using basic skills in imaginative ways. Anybody who has used even the simplest of mount cutters will definitely come away with a “shed load” (or workshop load) of ideas to try out. Basically, if you want to learn how to make your framing the very best (and most creative) it can be, all you need to do is sign up to our Master Classes.

By the end of two days three changes will occur:

  • you will know how to do some very clever things to impress customers and friends,
  • you will be able to combine ideas to come up with unique designs / projects of your own
  • you can look at photos in framing books and begin to work out “how they did it”.
