Fine Art Trade Guild Framing Standards and Qualifications Committee

I’ve recently been busy with the Fine Art Trade Guild.

Last week I attended the London branch meeting, enjoying and learning from David Wilke who gave a talk about how he has won many a framing competition.

Today I went to the London office of the Guild to attend my first meeting of the Framing Standards and Qualifications Committee. I was asked to join after winning the Guilds Framing Challenge earlier this year. I’m hopefully doing my bit to promote and preserve the framing industry in the future.

I pride myself on achieving accreditation within the Fine Art Trade Guild and look foward to working closer with the Guild in the future.

You can find me on their website at We Frame It

When you want the minimalist look to show off your art you can’t beat a Neilsen aluminium frame. Various profiles and wonderful range of colours available. It has the advantage of strength when used on a large picture where a narrow frame is required. Use the link below to see more about what is on offer.

World Wildlife Fund Charity donation - November 2019

We Frame It and my clan of elephants would like to thank all the customers who have donated money to the WWF. In return they take away one of my recycled milk carton elephants.

I’m about to make a payment of £27 to which Gift Aid will add 25p per £1.

Hand Made English Picture Frames available

I am now a supplier of Frinton Frames.

Their frames are hand made by a team of craftsmen in the UK.

The company has lovingly produced handmade bespoke picture frames for nearly 40 years.

Original 18th century, hand carved, box moulds are used to recreate authentic period designs. A plaster resin mix is used for the decoration which is applied to primed woood moulding. The frames are then carved and pierced by hand before the colour finishes are achieved by a series of individual processes, with many layers of hand stippling in the multiple colours required for each finish. This is followed by gentle burnishing with agate stone, before finally being sealed with a delicate application of wax.

Profiles are available from 18mm to 300mm width. Mitres are perfectly belneded on plain frames. Overmantles, Mirrors and Spandrel frames are available. There are over 300 colour finishes.Both equisite gold and silver leaf are available.

All the wood used in their frames is sourced from strictly monitored sustainable forests.
