Very enjoyable dayโ€™s course, well structured, good materials, a step by step how to do it with appropriate supervision, instruction and encouragement. Kieran was an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable and approachable. Canโ€™t really think of anyway the day could have been improved. I was very happy, if somewhat surprised, with the framed picture I produced.

We had 3 pieces framed with DIY and we were really pleased with the result. The whole process was seamless and efficient - from the initial consultation & advice on frames/glass through to collecting the finished pieces. We will use the DIY Framing again.

A perfect place where you can learn how to frame your prints or art work hands on. Linette our tutor for the day, showed us her expertise in frame making and helped us students to create magic with framing our own images and art pieces. Susan our helper for the day along with Linette also helped the students when a little extra was needed, it was a fantastic atmosphere, I learnt a lot in what goes into professional framing. I will be doing an advanced course with All About Framing next year. Many thanks to all I enjoyed the experience.
