Basic Picture Framing with Professional Equipment

Only RSVP please if you are interested. Please do NOT RSVP if you are not going - this is just creates waste.

Picture framing is very expensive simply because it is very labour intensive.

This practical course gives you a day using professional equipment with the idea that you can subsequently hire the gear to make your own frames. Class size is limited so everyone gets a full hands-on experience.

The day class covers:Choosing mouldings, Cutting precise mouldings with a Morso Guillotine, Cutting Mattes with a KeenCut Ultimat mattcutter, French Matting, Underpinning with a Molgra underpinner, Cutting glass by hand and machine, Cutting backing boards, Finishing. 

The course costs $70 which includes enough materials to make a small test frame and a finished frame approx A4 in size. If you are interested and want to know more you can call me on[masked], email [masked] or skype thephotoworkshop

Ignore the bit about "Euro" as there is no option for NZ dollars in this box) Tea and coffee will be provided but you should bring along some goodies for your lunch.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
