This one day workshop is suitable for complete beginners or for those wanting to refresh their mount cutting skills. Cutting your own mounts allows you to use standard size frames and recycle existing ones, so you will save a small fortune on framing costs. Perfect for painters, crafters, photographers, calligraphers, textile artists, in fact anyone wanting to make their pictures/textiles look their best. Excellent presentation makes a huge difference and if you sell your work, professional presentation is essential.
* Learn to cut accurate, bespoke, single mounts using a handheld mount cutter
* Calculate sizes so you can fit your pictures into standard size or recycled frames
* Experiment with mounts and frames to see how they change your picture
* By lunchtime you will have mounted your first couple of pictures
* Spend the afternoon cutting more mounts for your pictures and practicing your new skills
* Discover what the back of the frame really should look like
* Take home several mounted pictures ready to prop on a shelf or drop in a frame
Straightforward and friendly tuition with plenty of individual attention, maximum of six to a workshop. I will cover using the correct materials, tools and techniques. Lots of tips and shortcuts as well as illustrated handouts.
