Re: Do you tape up your package?

P90 for us here too for most things. Occassionally gummed conservation tape, or aluminium tape as appropriate.

Re: Framing Training (GCF) & Military Funding.

Mike was definitely the person near Bristol who previously did the training on that scheme - when I saw him last May he was clearing out bits of equipment ready to demolish his house and do a full rebuild on the site. Presumably he's well on the way with that now so I doubt he would still be able to...

Re: Mounting Wedding Rings

Is there any reason why you can't use a thin needle to make very small holes that would be hidden by the rings themselves? Or could you not put the holes under the ribbon that being used to tie the ribbons together?

Re: Am I a bit unusual having a band saw in my workshop?

We're very lucky because not only do we have a lot of "toys" (sorry, tools!) in our own workshop, plus a fully functioning woodworking workshop that my Dad has at his house that we regularly take advantage of using his pillar drills and bandsaw and the like. But we are also next door to a bespoke st...

Re: Newbie questions - what do I need to get started?

Welcome jabrenna I would agree with others David and poliopete - go and get yourself some training because it will be worth every penny in the long run. Most trainers will be happy to tailor a day or two on basic skills to exactly the sorts of thing you need to learn. Once you’ve done that you will ...

Re: Unidentified Underpinner

If you contact Wessex at their Leatherhead branch, some of the Origin people are working there. If you email a photo to Garry White, he was one of the trainers at Origin and he'd probably be able to tell you.

Re: White mount boards

I'd like to know, what the big deal and how come something that was o.k., now is not! Sorry Mark - again, to be clear - nothing about the current Guild Standards has changed. Boards which originally had been tested and passed as Conservation were then retested and found not to comply as they contai...

Thanks for the lovely comments. It remains one of my favourite pieces of work. It was one of those jobs we didn’t want to hand back, a true bit of history and we were so glad it survived the fire. The glass was standard 3mm - apart from the size of it there were a variety of reasons for that includi...

Re: White mount boards

Any that are now part of the Guild scheme and classified as Conservation will now meet that standard. It’s always best to check the supplier website rather than rely on chevron samples or catalogues as the website will have the most up to date information.

Here’s another angle. The reflection from the glass does make it a bit awkward to see, but you’ll get the general idea. :D

We had a request about 8 years back to frame a White Ensign that had been flown on a Dunkirk Little Boat.

Re: White mount boards

The new rules with the OBA’d mean that either mount board colour is now cream rather than white or a white mount board is no longer truly conservation. Just to clarify - there are no new rules for Guild Mountboard Standards. The current Guild Standards are exactly as they always have been and OBAs ...

So glad people enjoyed the Guild Weekend and the framing education on offer. It was great to meet up with so many familiar faces, meet familiar names from Forums and Facebook groups for the first time and to meet lots of new Framers too. It was well worth all the planning and preparation and we hope...
