Course FAQ

Can I bring my own picture to be framed?

Answer:

  • Yes, we encourage you to bring your own photos or pictures. Please read the “What do I need to bring?” section for details on dimensions and quantities of pictures.

Recommendations:

  • On the day you will be working with white mounts and a black frame, so bear that in mind when choosing an image to bring. A black and white photo will work really well if you are unsure.

What if I don’t have any pictures:

  • If you don’t have a picture to frame there will be pictures provided at the event or you can email us to print your pictures for you.

Bringing unsuitable pictures/Artwork:

  • If you arrive at the event with something that is NOT suitable, you won’t be able to use it. Below is a list of everything that is NOT suitable:
  • Fabrics, artwork with texture such as oils, acrylics, loose materials such as chalk, pastels, decoupage, etc. or tightly rolled prints that need flattening…
  • Once you’re through the Art & Photography Framing Weekend you’ll find we have courses especially for handling all of these types of artwork and objects!
 

Is there somewhere on site I can buy lunch from?

No, the venue only has basic facilities to make hot drinks, which we do provide. It’s outside of town, so we advise bringing a packed lunch or you may be rushing around in your lunch break and miss out on the great opportunity to get to know your fellow students over lunch!
