What opportunities will this course give me?

This is a course designed to assist learners with money saving, de-cluttering and home decor tips, and picture framing as a hobby. College offers a wide range of art, woodwork, interior design, and photography courses that students may wish to attend, please browse the website for details.

What will I be learning?

You will learn how to safely disassemble an old picture frame and how to measure dimensions for a new picture to fit in the frame you have taken apart. You will also learn how to cut a bevel edged window in a card mount for your new picture, then how to clean and reassemble the newly framed picture, ready to hang on a wall.

Throughout the workshop you will be assisted in reusing and refreshing your old picture frame, and given advice and support to overcome any difficulties.
