Hand Finished Moulding Days With Bev Saunders

Alec and Jo Palmer were delighted to host Bev Saunders from Edge Bespoke Picture Framing at the start of July 2023. She spent two days of training with Alec on all aspects of hand finished moulding and frames. Check out what she had to say about it below…

I took a few days out of my holiday to spend time with Alec and Jo of The Framing Lot.”

“Alec is a boy who likes his toys, his ongoing banter with Jo about his clamp collection is legendary, but you should see how many finishing brushes he has!!!”

“He has the patience of a saint and was so generous with his time, knowledge, and experience. Spending time with him was a treat. Covering techniques in hand finishing, working with magnets and box frame construction has opened my eyes, broadened my knowledge, and lifted my confidence to produce a finished product even more professionally.”

“He also introduced me to techniques, tools, and suppliers that will make particular tasks simpler to execute, less time consuming, and crucially result in a more professional finish.”

“I can’t thank him enough for such a fun couple of days.”

“Thanks also to Jo for demonstrating a nifty way to prepare and present sports shirts professionally for a non-damaging result.”

“Alec and Jo are Fine Art Trade Guild Accredited trainers, if you are a professional picture framer, looking to up your game you need to spend time with them or visit the training portal PictureFramingTraining.com to find a trainer near you.”

“You will definitely be in for many light bulb moments.”

We’d like to give a big thank you to Bev for the excellent feedback, and are happy that she got plenty of value from her two days with Jo and Alec.
