Summer of Framing
There are four, summer venues for our Art & Photography Framing, Training Weekends coming up. Any of these could be the catalyst to get you started with picture framing. Although we list the dates for these sessions, we rarely provide the overview for what you can achieve in just two days.
You bring along your own prints and discover how to identify the key elements of a framed picture; cut mounts; attach your picture into the mount; cut and join moulding sections to create a frame for the mounted picture; add a finish; cut glass and backing board to fit; and finally, assemble the framed picture, ready for hanging cord.
On the mount cutting day you will discover a range of cutting techniques by creating a range of window mounts: experimenting with double mounts; cutting offset corners; creating a deep bevel mount; learning about spaced mounts; and finally designing, marking out and cutting a mount with multiple apertures.
You go away with an amazing portfolio of work to impress and serve as a practical reminder of your new skills.
