Picture Framing Courses
All of our picture framing courses are run on an intensive "one to one" basis by Mike Royall GCF at his framing studio in Bristol. Joint tuition (maximum of two) is also available should you wish to share your course with a partner, friend or business colleague. Mike is well known for being passionate about picture framing and is one of the most highly respected framers in the UK. His reputation as a framing teacher has now stretched well beyond the United Kingdom with people from as far away as South Africa, Portugal, Kenya, Norway, Turkey, New Zealand, Luxembourg, Australia, Nepal, Trinidad, Singapore, America and Malta attending his courses. Mike is currently the only farming trainer in the UK who's also a qualified adult education teacher and he's been teaching people how to frame on a "one to one" basis for over 20 years and to date has taught almost 700 people. In addition he's the only framing trainer in the UK who's been approved by the MOD to teach anyone leaving the Armed Services who wants to retrain to become a picture framer. Most of his students have either gone on to start their own business or to work as an employee in the framing industry. His courses have been recognised as being of the highest quality and have been fully accredited by the Fine Art Trade Guild which is the art and framing industry's governing body.
Mike has been a Guild Certified Framer (GCF) since the qualification was introduced in 1994 and has been operating a successful art gallery and picture framing business since leaving the Aerospace industry in 1990 where he held a senior position in Human Resources. His wealth of knowledge and expertise is in great demand and he's often found running picture framing courses and seminars around the UK and at places such as the NEC in Birmingham.
