Mount Cutting Workshops

Photo Show Work shops

We are pleased to be running our very popular, Cut Your Own, Quality Mounts workshops at this year's festival.  When these were running at The Photography Show 2014, the sessions sold out and the feedback was absolutely fantastic.  That's why we decided to offer the same style sessions at Patchings 2014 to offer artists an insight into the best way to mount your artwork.  

Planning and cutting mounts can be a pain,  but with some simple guidelines we will have you cutting well balanced mounts time and time again. This practical session includes building a hinge mount and discovering the effect of varying border weights.

NB Sessions will suit complete novices as well as those having some experience of cutting simple mounts: techniques may be similar but there are loads of little tricks of the trade that you may not have seen before.
