Workshops

wORKSHOPS

I started making hardwood doors 27 years ago, picture frames for 25, musical instruments for 29 and leaded glass for 10. I guess you could say I have a bit of experience in the subjects covered in our workshops!

Although you could make a career out of what you’ll learn on one of our workshops, you’ll be just as happy having a day in the workshop learning a new hobby, and, you’ll leave with a finished piece you can be proud of.

Making Picture Frames

I started making picture frames in 1997 and started a business doing just that in 1998. Although I use equipment that costs thousands of pounds, I’ll also teach you how you can do it with ‘normal’ tools and equipment you might have in your garage.

You’ll leave with all the knowledge you need to make your own picture frames and a finished piece.

On the workshop you’ll learn…

  • Equipment you’ll need
  • Materials you can and can’t use
  • Measuring so your frame fits your subject
  • Rebating wooden profiles
  • Cutting corners
  • Fitting a frame together
  • Staining/waxing/painting your picture frame
  • Cutting glass
  • Ways of hanging a picture frame
