Book your place on a John Jones BIID Talk & Tour for interior designers
21 August 2013
We are delighted to be an affiliate member of the British Institute of Design, a professional organisation for interior designers in the UK representing both the commercial and residential sectors. As a CPD Provider, John Jones offers free workshops designed to introduce interior design professionals to the art of framing. From colour and finish to glazing and installation, this event will guide you through the design options which impact upon the long-term presentation and preservation of fine art and ultimately its function within an interior space. Each workshop includes:
• Discussion of frame design trends and recent creative projects undertaken at our studios
• A tour of our sanding, metalwork and gilding workshops where UK based craftspeople construct all of our frames by hand
• Discussion around aesthetic considerations such as height, position and lighting that help to incorporate fine art into an interior, or create a statement for a room.
• A chance to examine diverse framing samples in the flesh
• Analysis and explanation of current artwork conservation and restoration practices
• Opportunity to peruse the exhibition space and John Jones contemporary art collection.
Upcoming workshop dates
Tuesday 1st October 3 - 5pm
Tuesday 5th November 3 - 5pm
