    A great introduction to framing but with so much more help and information than I expected. I learnt so much and feel confident with going forwards. It was a great experience and also hosted extremely well and professionally. Thank you so much Glyn for a great day. Highly recommend this course to anyone interested to know how it all works and you get to take home a lovely souvenir too. 5*

    I spent the day with Glyn yesterday on his beginners framing day. I was 1 – 1 and he produced so much support material that I am confident to go away and begin framing on my own. I will definitely go back for the next level course. Thank you Glyn

    I really wish I had a ‘before’ photo to show off what a difference has been made to my picture! The new frame that Glyn made has lifted the whole image and enhanced it beautifully. Not knowing anything about framing myself, I appreciated Glyn’s guidance in choosing the right mount and the wood that would work the best. I see now the importance of a good frame.

    I attended the introduction to Picture Framing full-day course with Glyn recently and was so pleased that I found his course. It was such a treat to have one-to-one tuition and I felt totally at ease with the day, despite the various challenges along the way of the much- needed hands-on experience of measurement, calculations, cutting, sawing and stapling, etc. Glyn is methodical, very patient and encouraging in his teaching approach and now I feel that I have the confidence to try my own picture-framing, despite no previous experience! I also know that I can read the excellent, detailed handouts which Glyn provides, or contact him for further advice if needed. So a big Thank You to Glyn and his wife for making me so welcome in their home – and endless cups of tea!!

    I contacted WorldUnderGlass in a last minute panic about framing some photos as a Christmas present and I am so pleased I did! The result is a highly professional finish is an astoundingly quick turnaround time. I could tell there was a great deal of care taken with my order. What I am incredibly impressed with is the level of kindness, patience and professional knowledge – great customer interaction (including teaching my 8 year old a magic trick!)

    The finished product is so good we’re tempted to keep it for ourselves.

    I had 3 pictures framed by Glyn. Although I stated there was no rush, they were all framed within a week. Very professional and efficient service. Would highly recommend.

    I attended a 1 to 1 framing course with Glyn at WorldUnderGlass and found it to be very informative and logically presented. The course answered all my questions as a complete novice and covered everything one needs to know in order to make professional looking picture frames. This is a hands on course with Glyn giving expert instruction and then allowing you to have a go and also providing you with backup instructions sheets to take home. All in all a full productive day and great value for money to get you started in framing.

    I did the introduction to framing and I can thoroughly recommend this course. It's done on a one to one basis and this means you are helped on every stage of the process. Glyn is very knowledgeable and you get to try out all the different techniques. There are also comprehensive notes provided. I really enjoyed learning about all the various aspects of framing.

    Amazing course, I was very well received by Glyn and his wife at his house. Nothing was too much trouble. You will learn everything you need to know to start making your own picture framing. Glyn is very professional, courteous and patient, a true gentleman, running the course at your own pace. The hand outs are brilliant and extremely helpful, which are handed out to you throughout the course and you can take them home with you at the end of the course. Contrary to other teachers and courses out there, Glyn actually lets you do the work after a quick explanation, how to use the tools, method, etc. which is a great bonus. All the tools are of great quality an well maintained making the learning experience a lot easier. Believe me, you will be leaving the course with a great amount of knowledge and a lovely picture framed by yourself which proves that you can do it. If you are looking for a picture framing course to start a business like myself or even just to be able to frame your own pictures, look no further as this is the one for you. Thank you so much Glyn and I wish you all the best for the future, keep up the good work

    I cannot recommend the Introduction to Picture Framing Course enough. Glyn is a very knowledgeable and patient trainer. The topics covered are very comprehensive and clear, detailed handouts are provided for you to refer to on the day and take home. You will however be learning a great deal first hand as the course is very practical, I particularly enjoyed this aspect of the course as it was challenging and great fun in equal measure. Thank you again Glyn for a thoroughly enjoyable day and I can't wait to get framing!

    What a wonderful introduction to picture framing! I have wanted to learn how to make frames for many years and this course really does tick all the boxes, and more. Glyn has devised a very well structured day with plenty of hands on experience and the notes you walk away with are incredibly detailed, meaning you don't have to worry about frantically scribbling things down throughout the day. Glyn also spends a lot of time preparing for the course ahead of your arrival, so not one moment is wasted on the day. I would highly recommend this one day introduction to framing to anyone wanting to learn these skills, whether that be for your own personal use or as an introduction to professional framing.

    Spent the day on the beginners course with Glyn. He plans the day ahead very clearly, and goes at your pace. Very friendly and very patient. Talks you through all aspects of picture framing, and sends you away with paperwork that explains the foundations of measurements for any size picture you want to frame. Plenty of practical too! If you want to learn picture framing than Glyn at WorldUnderGlass is a great place to start. Good luck

    Excellent day, very informative and a framed picture to take home which I’m happy to put on the wall!

    The leader’s presentation was very clear and we all had hands-on practice of each stage in the process.  The hand-outs provided were detailed and helpful.  Warm welcome and excellent lunch.  Thank you.
