Just in time for Christmas. Picture framing is very expensive simply because it is labour intensive. This practical course gives you a day using professional equipment with the idea that you can subsequently hire the gear to make your own frames. Class size is limited to just 4 students to ensure everyone gets a full hands-on experience. $195 including enough materials for a test frame and a finished (matte, backing board, glass) 10 x 8-inch frame.
Private day course costs $245 and includes enough materials to make two small or medium frames, complete with mattes, glass and backing boards.
This fun day class covers:
Choosing mouldings, cutting precise mouldings with a Morso guillotine, cutting mattes with a KeenCut Ultimat matt cutter, French matting, underpinning with a Molgra underpinner, cutting glass by hand and machine, cutting backing boards, finishing. The studio is also equipped with an Ademco Heat press and a Cold Roller laminator.
