Course description

These specials are designed for the whole range of artists & photographers: keen amateurs through to professionals. Originally designed to meet the needs of photographers, these specials were clearly very popular with all artists working in any 2D medium.

In terms of photography, we have worked with all levels: wedding photographers; camera club members; gallery photographers; those wanting to frame pictures of their children. Every one has found the days to be enjoyable and informative. Some have now added framing to their businesses and product range. These offer the same structure outlined in the two Entry Level courses (Basics of Framing & Mount Cutting and Decoration) so that you can acquire the necessary general framing and mount cutting skills, but with an emphasis on your specialist area.

This special weekend framing course covers the same practical ground as the two Basic courses: Basics of Framing and Mount Cutting and Decoration.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The framing course is aimed at complete beginners as well as those who may have tried to frame their own work.

Training Course Content

Through clear explanation, demonstration and hands on practice using specialised tools on day 1 you will:

  • plan and cut a mount,
  • attach artwork into the mount system,
  • saw and join moulding,
  • cut glass and backing board,
  • assemble the framing package for hanging and add a finish to the frame.

After completing your frame on day 1, on day 2 we focus on mounts – how to maximize the impact of your images, engaging with the final element of presentation. You will:

  • experiment with double, offset corner and combination mounts,
  • mark out and cut a mount with multiple apertures for groups of photos and receive training in deep bevel and spaced mounts.


We provide all tools, materials, tea, coffee and a full training manual. You can bring your own images or artwork to frame.

  • Adding Decorative Finishes to Frames

  • Stretching and Framing Canvas-Based Artwork

  • Conservation Framing

  • Fabric Framing

  • Sport Shirt and Clothing Framing

I booked this workshop for my husband and he said: "I loved this workshop! Mark was a great tutor who allowed us to work at their pace but intervened when necessary. He introduced us to the equipment and processes involved in the making of a complete frame from scratch. We got to cut mounts, cut moulds, cut glass and design the backing mounts. I...
