Open Day and Christmas Bazaar

.... or should that read bizarre? 

This is the second of our Open Days this year.
Date:  Saturday 16th December
Venue: DIY Framing HQ, Woodlands Farm Beaconsfield
Times: 10.00 am - 3.30 pm

In a last minute fit of "Christmas Spirit", Duncan McDonald invites you to join us for mince pies and mulled wine at the "hub" of his framing world.  As well as festive refreshments there will be several opportunities to fill your stockings with Christmas gifts. 

A "star" attraction will be a mini - workshop / demonstration of how to make your Christmas framing really come alive by creating unique paint and colour effects on bare wood moulding.  You will be given ideas of what moulding styles best suit different types of finish and how to prepare mouldings for the various media to be used.  You will be shown some of the wide range of paints, stains and finishing products available and how to use them in various combinations to create stunning and unique looks.  The first 8 - 10 people will be able to grab seats at the front, and even try some effects for themselves.   
There will be two sessions during the day:
Session 1:  10.30 am - 11.30 am
Session 2:  1.30 pm - 2.30 pm. 

Plenty of time will be set aside after each demonstration for people to ask questions and have a closer look at the materials being used.

Other attractions include:

  • 10% off many of our catalogue prices;
  • special prices on 2nd hand and ex demo tools and equipment
  • bargains galore - including moulding packs and special offer mount boards.


Santa’s little helpers will also be on hand to

  • demonstrate the full range of tools and equipment (including the new Charnwood moulding guillotine)
  • help to solve those "framing" little problems
  • advise on how to undertake a whole range of framing projects.

So, if you are stuck for a different style of present or ideas for how to make that unique, personalised gift, don’t miss the DIYframing Christmas Bazaar.
