New Course: Take Your Mount Cutting & Decoration Even Further


A little while ago we invited people to let us know if they may be interested in some proposed new training days designed to extend skills beyond the range covered on our starter, Mount Cutting & Decoration day.


I am delighted to say that we have now refined those ideas to develop two training days, which can be either purchased as a weekend block or as separate sessions.  We have, intentionally, packaged each day so that the ideas in each one, work well together, and each one therefore has a different emphasis: the first on cutting; the second on bespoke decoration.


These workshops will run over the weekend of 4th & 5th March in High Wycombe.  The inaugural sessions will be priced at the same cost as those on the Art & Photo Framing Training weekends: later they are likely to be priced as Development Level courses, when each one will cost around £25 (+ vat) more.


To explore these sessions further, please have a look at the links below:


We anticipate that these sessions will prove popular, so book early to avoid disappointment as numbers are strictly limited.

New Products in Store

We have two new products to share with you this month: Nobex Framing Kit Base Board; Amaco Wax Frame Filler


Base BoardThis Base Board is ideal for fixing the Nobex Promaster Framing Kit to. If you want the saw and measures system to be secure but moveable, then this will create the ideal platform.  This solid base is covered in ribbed rubber matting:  size 940mm x 235mm.


When you have assembled the framing kit (see HH sheet Setting Up A Nobex Promaster Framing Kit) simply screw down through the "feet" of the kit into the base board.


Amaco Wax Filler

Amaco Wax Frame Filler has a consistency making it ideal for gaps and holes in frames. Simply push into crevice then wipe excess with finger or cloth. 

Available in white or black: 56gm/2oz flat tins.

Special, introductory price: £8.95 (+ vat)
