The course was great, with everything you need provided. Nick, our tutor, was super clear and concise in his teaching and a nice small group meant there was a lot of time to interact with Nick and lean more. I went from zero frame-making experience to making a decent effort in just a day. I definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about getting into framing, either for fun or as a a starter with the intention into making it a job.

Fantastic introductory course to picture framing. Linette the course tutor was fantastic. She took us through every stage step by step. She made the day very interesting and fun to learn. Can't wait to get framing.

Can I say how much I enjoyed the course? Linette the was an excellent tutor, making straightforward what might otherwise have been tricky procedures. I've been a self-taught framer for some years, doing my own work, but realise now that things could have been so much easier and that I can use more appropriate materials. I'm looking to develop my framing into something more of a business as I move away from my current job as a painter and decorator. I need something a little less arduous as the body gets older. Will look at further course as time allows, but first I'm very keen to bring a whole pile of prints and paintings out of storage and onto the walls!

I did a one day framing course here. Really good day: Linnette was an excellent teacher, explained and demonstrated the various processes well and helped us when needed. I came away feeling confident that I could do it myself - so the course works. Thoroughly recommended.

I had a great time at the framing course that I attended recently. The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and patient. The only downside was the tables at the facilities were a bit wobbly making cutting the frames challenging. Well worth it.
