Description

What is the course about?

A practical introduction to picture framing and mount cutting. Gain hands on experience with professional tools and constructing methods. We will explore the different elements of frame making as well as other aspects of the protection and presentation of works of art.

What will we cover?

We will be learning how to cut and join frames. How to cut glass and mount-board, as well as different styles of mounting work in the frames.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- Measure and cut frames using a variety of different tools
- Use different methods to glue and join frames
- Cut glass
- Measure and cut mount-board to fit your art work
- Have a working understanding of different ways to mount your art work.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

The course is suitable for complete beginners and those with some frame making experience.

You should be able to follow simple written and verbal instructions to support demonstrations, hand-outs and for health and safety information, and will be invited to take part in group discussion. You should be able to take short written notes for your own use and be able to do simple measurements and calculations.

Due to the constraints of the room size, we wont be able to frame anything bigger than A2.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Sessions are all studio based. Examples of the media will be shown and discussed. There will be practical demonstrations, followed by practical application supported by one-to-one guidance and written instructions.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

The course fee covers all basic materials that will be used, such as frame moulding, glass and mount-board. More specialist materials can be bought at cost in the class. It is a hands-on class so it would be good to bring an apron or clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

This is a 5 star course and no mistake.
Firstly, the tutor was great. They tell you the minimum theory you need to get started and thereafter it’s all hands on stuff. They teach you the basics, but then is happy to help people follow there own ideas , guiding for example. The are good humoured and available with it.
There is a good range of equipment from basic amateur stuff to professional framing shop tools. I wanted to learn to make decent frames without indulging in reams of new equipment and the course taught me a number of ways to achieve that. The main difficulty for amateurs is cutting clean accurate mitres. For the amateur their is no easy/inexpensive solution to that, but that is no fault of the course.
All in all hugely enjoyable and informative and with my new skill set I took home 4 finished frames, using different techniques.

It did not live up to its description. I came away feeling very disappointed that I had not covered the basics in picture framing.
