'Picture framing can be a great hobby as well as a great career. The UK School of Framing will hold your hand all the way which ever path you choose.'
The UK School of Framing
For fun or profit learning to frame can be a really rewarding skill to learn. After years of struggling to find a suitable course in his quest to become a framer the founder Duncan McDonald used all this negitive knowlegde to build a package of courses to suit all levels.
The UK School of Framing was launched in 2008. It is a separate element within DIY framing and offers the best solution to learning about picture framing in the country. Accredited by the Fine Art Trade Guild, we are delighted to say that our training programme won the Art & Framing Industry award for Innovation.
Exploring all the options we offer could change your life. A big claim, but the simple fact is, everyday, in one way or another, we help people to do just that. We support all skills, abilities and backgrounds. We can help you, however far you want to go.
Our 13 individual courses take you from the very basics through to a level you would comfortably be able to become a commended guild framer (The only framing accreditation in the UK).
We specialise in home setup programs for people wanting to add this skill to an existing business such as photographers, artists or galleries. What make us stand out from the rest is the continual support and advise we offer course attendees as they grow their fledgling business.
