Re: Newbie questions - what do I need to get started?

Welcome jabrenna I would agree with others David and poliopete - go and get yourself some training because it will be worth every penny in the long run. Most trainers will be happy to tailor a day or two on basic skills to exactly the sorts of thing you need to learn. Once you’ve done that you will ...

Re: Unidentified Underpinner

If you contact Wessex at their Leatherhead branch, some of the Origin people are working there. If you email a photo to Garry White, he was one of the trainers at Origin and he'd probably be able to tell you.

Re: White mount boards

I'd like to know, what the big deal and how come something that was o.k., now is not! Sorry Mark - again, to be clear - nothing about the current Guild Standards has changed. Boards which originally had been tested and passed as Conservation were then retested and found not to comply as they contai...

Re: Flag

Thanks for the lovely comments. It remains one of my favourite pieces of work. It was one of those jobs we didn’t want to hand back, a true bit of history and we were so glad it survived the fire. The glass was standard 3mm - apart from the size of it there were a variety of reasons for that includi...

Re: White mount boards

Any that are now part of the Guild scheme and classified as Conservation will now meet that standard. It’s always best to check the supplier website rather than rely on chevron samples or catalogues as the website will have the most up to date information.

Here’s another angle. The reflection from the glass does make it a bit awkward to see, but you’ll get the general idea. :D

Re: Flag

We had a request about 8 years back to frame a White Ensign that had been flown on a Dunkirk Little Boat. The Ensign had belonged to the customer's father and had a long history of eventful travel with him during WW2. In the years after the war the customer remembered it framed up outside his father...

Re: White mount boards

The new rules with the OBA’d mean that either mount board colour is now cream rather than white or a white mount board is no longer truly conservation. Just to clarify - there are no new rules for Guild Mountboard Standards. The current Guild Standards are exactly as they always have been and OBAs ...

Re: Framers Workshops at the Guild Weekend

So glad people enjoyed the Guild Weekend and the framing education on offer. It was great to meet up with so many familiar faces, meet familiar names from Forums and Facebook groups for the first time and to meet lots of new Framers too. It was well worth all the planning and preparation and we hope...

Re: Attaching a fringe

It isn't clear if you are looking to frame them so that the Colours are completely flat and upright, but I'm presuming that's what they are after as they want the fringe held out all the way around. You could potentially use an overlay fabric such as this https://restore-products.co.uk/collections/r...

Re: Tape....

Out of interest Jo et al, what back boards do you use with your gummed tapes? We tend to use solid Kraftboard for most of our jobs Justin. If it is going to be Conservation or Museum level we add an extra barrier layer of Mylar or similar to the inside of the kraftboard. We do use the Aqua boards o...

Re: Framers Workshops at the Guild Weekend

A lot of the education and articles around textile framing focusses on the big and impressive projects that require a bit of problem solving and ingenuity; the hard to frame items that are seen every now and then. And that is fair enough as they can make for good reading and great photographs. But t...

We use gummed paper tape, have done for many years after swapping from self adhesive and we get ours from Lion. We only use self adhesive tape these days if we are using an aqua coated backing board (gummed won't stick properly), if we are re-taping an old frame for a customer and it already has sel...
