Building on feedback from AWAD members, the London framers and AWAD Partners Store Street Framing have put together a selection of frame mouldings specifically focused on galleries and dealers.

The aim was to identify ‘gallery standard’ mouldings that could be offered at the most competitive prices possible.

– Box frames in black and white, plus a raw wood version that can be painted or stained.

– Tray frames in raw wood, to take canvases18mm and 36mm deep.

All the mouldings are available from stock for quick turnaround, and AWAD members receive special discounted pricing.

  • Tips on how pros use smartphones to snap and edit photos plus videos (including apps to use);
  • How to upload images and videos to social media / YouTube / other platforms;
  • Training to help you export images from your phone + back-up images so that you don’t lose them;
  • Trouble-shooting.

This workshop is open to all. To register follow this link to Eventbrite.
