… measuring, measuring, measuring…

The first step in framing is design.  It’s all about planning and measurement. We’re talking about a 2mm difference and the artwork can fall through the aperture you’ve made!  Can you impact the design with your measurements?  Yes!  Can you enhance the finished product through careful planning?  Yes!

Join me in a free mini workshop where I’ll give you a few pointers on design, planning and measurements…

Starting on Monday 13th Feb.

It’s live and online.  If you want to watch and learn that’s great, if you want to bring a picture and join in, then please do.

Interested?  Yes?

Based in Twickenham, South West London, River Crane Framing has provided a bespoke picture framing service to help you preserve your memories since 2013.  Currently the main focus is on training others to start new hobbies or to build their own picture framing businesses.

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.

I have also 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…

I run 1-1 in person training days and online workshops.  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. 

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 and the approach we should take to preserve your memories.

I also offer picture framing courses in the workshop. 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.
