Framing the Stars and Stripes

I've recently completed the biggest challenge of my career as a picture framer. At 2mtrs long by 1.4 mtrs high this very large and extremely heavy frame was at the limit of what I could construct in my small workshop.

My customer wanted a large flag framed along with an inscription for a plaque. The frame is glazed with 5mm acrylic and has a red hand painted spacer to space the glazing away from touching the flag. A subframe was added to strengthen the construction. The frame was delivered by a removal company and as you see was successfully installed .

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.

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.
