Business Development Week


The November Business Development Week was an exceptional success, with each day of the programme being full.   Already we have had several inquiries and bookings for the next series of dates: 20th - 26th March.  So if you are thinking of developing your picture framing further, or even looking at specific elements of picture framing, it is a good idea to see what the Business Development Week offers.


Remember you can book individual (or any combination of) days within the week or, indeed the complete package.  For more about the course programme click: Business Development Week.

Channel 4 News


There’s been a real buzz in recent weeks around the DIYframing, buildings down on Woodlands Farm, Beaconsfield. Imagine the excitement of receiving a call from a Channel 4 production team, asking about the possibility of doing a screen test for a programme being shown in spring 2010. The show in question is Kirstie’s Homemade Home.  It explores the idea of using local crafts and artisans to decorate and “make-over” your home. In the first series, Kirstie Allsopp found out about a whole range of crafts, from card making to glass blowing, learning how to do some of them for herself. The aim is to give recognition to the craftspeople keeping these skills alive, whilst achieving a unique interior design.


Our involvement would be as a featured craft, teaching some of the skills involved in good quality, bespoke picture framing. MORE >>

Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas from me, and all my little helpers at DIYframing.

It has been such an exciting year for us here at DIYframing. We’ve had continued and increased support for our training sessions around the country. As a result, the number of businesses and artisan framers we helped to launch also goes from strength to strength. Add to that some great new services, product ranges and a brand new 48 page catalogue: we have a lot to be pleased with.


A great highlight was the framing competition which we fully intend to develop and repeat in the New Year.


So, many thanks to all of you for your interest and support throughout 2009 and we look forward to keeping in touch through 2010.  In the meantime, a few updates  to help you on your way.
