Based in Twickenham, South West London, River Crane Framing has provided a bespoke picture framing service since 2013. Currently the main focus is on training others to start new hobbies or to build their own picture framing businesses, with limited bespoke framing services.
I’m Sue Harper (GCF(APF)), resident picture framer and trainer, and the projects I have worked on include one-off pieces for gifts or art for the home, and projects for galleries. My workshop in the garden provides a peaceful alternative to shopping on the High Street. I work by appointment only, to provide a calm space to discuss your artwork.
Framing: I have framed for photographers and other artists preparing for exhibitions, for designers and decorators working on new room layouts, and for anyone wanting to preserve cherished memories. I have framed photographs, drawings, paintings, prints, mirrors, canvases, shirts, embroideries, silk scarves, tapestries, medals…in short, your memories…Focusing on training, I take bookings for framing commissions on Tuesdays. Email me to book.
Workshops: I run 1-1 in person picture framing training days and online workshops. Whether you want to spend a day doing something different, want to learn a new skill, or set up your own framing workshop, I tailor the workshop to suit you, in person or online.
My signature online workshop is called “The Profitable Picture Framer” where I teach you how to take your hobby and turn it into a business. I also run an introduction to framing course called “The Confident Picture Framer”. These programmes run once a year.
