Re: Guild Weekend 2022 - Framing workshops (14th May at 10.30am)

Different hotel - same town. The Crown Plaza is next to the river and a few minutes walk into the town centre. The other hotel was a few miles outside town.

Re: Guild Weekend 2022 - Framing workshops (14th May at 10.30am)

That’s very kind of you to say so Mark. I think you may be confusing it with Framers Forum Live! that was held in a different hotel in Stratford some years ago. I remember that you and your wife visited that for the day on at least one occasion. This is a Guild organised event and the practical educ...

Re: Guild Weekend 2022 - Framing workshops (14th May at 10.30am)

A reminder that there is less than a week to go until the Guild Weekend. Open to Guild members as well as non-members, the Saturday is when most activities take place. We’ve been delighted with how many people have pre-registered and also booked to attend the Master’s Dinner in the evening. The dayt...

Your local Wessex Pictures branch should be able to sort that for you and deliver it.

Re: Debossing a line around mount aperture

You must be a mind-reader! We had a week of Guild meetings in the office last week and that was one of the items up for discussion. We've got a wealth of technical information and expertise going back over 110 years. We have revisited some articles from the past, but we intend to delve deeper and fi...

Re: Debossing a line around mount aperture

Hi Steve I’ll have a word with the office and see what we can do. Next issue of Art + Framing Today goes to print this week, so we’ve missed that, but I’m sure we can find room in a future issue. 😊 The magazine is available to members as part of their annual subscription and to non-members through a...

Re: Guild Weekend 2022 - Framing workshops (14th May at 10.30am)

The Sunday morning we have the AGM at 10.30 - and this year we are electing a new Chair & Master of the Guild as I am at the end of my 3-year term of office. We have a bit of chat and final clearing up and then most people are away no later than lunchtime.

Hi You're very welcome to register to let us know you are coming along - it will allow us to pre-print a badge for you and give us an idea of numbers. But you don't specifically need to do that. The workshops run from 10.30am to 3pm and they are drop-in ones, designed so you can arrive at a time tha...

Re: Stacked Frames

Thank you :D all my husband Alec's work. I will pass on your comments. He started as a gunmaker with Holland & Holland and that was where he discovered his love of wood finishing. When he moved into his family business of picture framing in the early 1990s, it allowed him to experiment by stacking f...

….. and of course we do hand finish stacked mouldings too. Few examples below. It’s about working to your strengths and interests and as always in this trade, there’s always more than one way to do something. What suits one business model, won’t suit another. Yes, hand-finishing can start with bare ...

Re: Stacked Frames

Here’s a fun one using the Larson-Juhl Anvil range that is specifically designed to stack together. These pieces were collected during Ten Tors training on Dartmoor and we’ve attached them using magnets set into a beautiful piece of the old school stage from my High School. Quality bit of aged pine ...

Re: I'm looking for ideas for selling a large quantity of frame rims?

Why not just leave them as they are, rather than spending more time and effort cutting them down to a smaller size? You are creating more work for yourself on the off-chance that the smaller size will sell, that doesn't seem to make much sense. Particularly as you have so many to deal with. Why not ...

Re: Lots of framing brains, all under one roof!

I'm going to be talking all things Textile Framing - from delicate fabrics, cross stitches and needlepoints, silk scarves, sports shirts and other clothing items - different ways to support and frame them and hints and tips on handling.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
