Show Time


The Craft4Crafters exhibition is running from 5th - 7th September at the Newark & Nottingham Showground; it should appeal to all artists, needle workers and crafters. Although a new venue for DIYframing, we found last year's event in Exeter, run by the same group, was a great success, so we are looking forward to an exciting few days. To find out more about this show, follow the link Craft4Crafters.


We will also be attending the Exeter show at the end of September.

Open Day


DIYframing Open Days, in the summer and near Christmas, are becoming regular features of the framing calendar. There are so many reasons why you should pop along and see us on September 13th 2008 at our Beaconsfield base. One of the best might be to take advantage of the free seminars with guest David Wilkie GCF.

Specialist Training


The UK School of Framing is starting to move into more specialised areas with its ever-developing training programme. As well as maintaining the current courses profile, we now aim to offer areas for broadening and extending the skills of those, who have been with us for some time. This means that more experienced and even professional framers will now be able to find something to challenge them. For details of workshops on offer click: Specialist Training.

At every one of the shows and exhibitions we attend throughout the year, we give visitors the chance to win a free training day. If you ever wonder about how things work out for our prize winners, we can reveal all. Some of our winners were invited to join our training session in Maidstone in July. We caught up with one of those winners, Dot Penn, who was happy to tell us about her prize winning experience.

Massive Range of Mouldings


Spending 8 hours looking at different moulding profiles may not seem to be an exciting way to spend a working day. However, for 3 members of our team, that is exactly what they did when deciding on our hugely upgraded range of mouldings. The reason we give it so much thought is that we know the way you work and types of framing you need to do. Matching up a versatile and practical range of mouldings with great looks and design was a challenge. But, take a look at the exciting styles we now offer and we know you'll be impressed.
