Mount Proportions & BalanceGetting Back to Basics: Measurements, materials, proportions and balance

10.30 am – 11.30 am:  Using a selection of images, and cutting mounts, we look at the different ways to measure and record the dimensions for all the materials you'll use in a frame.


Wash Lines in MountsWash Lines:  Adding Decorative Detail to Mounts

12.30 pm – 1.30 pm: This is an introduction to adding decorative detail to your mounts using lines and washes. Not many framers offer this technique, often used in the past for water colours.  It can be useful to know in case a customer needs you to replace an existing mount that has faded or become damaged, or as a fun alternative to a double mount or v-groove.

Framing In Detail: More Specialised Training


Don’t be put off by the term “more specialised” framing, training.  These sessions do build on the core skills you will learn through our Basics of Framing and Mount Cutting & Decoration training days, but the specialised bit refers mainly to the fact that the new skills you will acquire relate to a more specific style of framing project, rather than requiring more sophisticated skills.


So have a look, below at the three sessions coming up: they may be just what you’re after. 



CONSERVATION FRAMING: Saturday 8th July, High Wycombe

FABRIC FRAMING: Sunday 9th July, High Wycombe

(nb only a few places remaining on each)
