Training Course Content

Three options will be explored and practised:

  • lacing
  • pinning to foam mountboard
  • tight fit through square cut mountboard.

You will also look at general principles used in preparing some other types of fabric based art for framing, including stretching a canvas over wooden frames, sewing in quilts and stapling to board. You will then choose a method best suited to mounting your artwork, before being guided through your own framing project:

  • preparing the artwork for mounting
  • creating a (sink)mount
  • making and assembling a frame and preparing the picture for hanging


We provide all tools, materials, tea, coffee and a full training manual.
