Here is what our clients have to say.

Hi Joe
I hope all is well with you.
 
Firstly, I would like to thank you for the last 17 years for all the times that you have assisted me when I had framing queries via the telephone.  It was always so comforting to know that you were always there to help me in times of need.
 
I wanted to let you know that a lady by the name of S….. M…… will be joining your framing course on 8 April 2019.  She will probably register with you in a day or two.  
 
She lives in the same housing estate as we do and she is in the same predicament that I was 17 years ago.  She has 3 young boys and needs to earn an income whilst still being at home with the children.  
 
I was the same and then I then started my framing business and never looked back.  I am delighted that she has decided to do your course.  
 
Thank you Joe so very much and may you continue to always be the best framer and instructor SA has ever had.
 
Kind regards
M……

Evening everyone. Just a short note to say thanks for the wonderful week and a big thanks to Joe. A lifetime of invaluable experience.

Hi Everyone
I am safe home.
Meeting all of you was Amazing.
Joe and team
Thank you so much for everything.
Shayne and Jacoba – Safe travels home.
Happy Framing everyone.
Till we meet again…

Thanks Joe and fellow doilies. It was great meeting you all. Wishing you everything of the best with your new projects! Happy week end!

I attended the framing course during April 2021. Joe is surely an expert who has the confidence and personality to transfer not just information but real know-how against the background relaxed ambience of his training facility. The lunch was really good and the atmosphere created amongs students pleasant. Will surely attend an advanced course sometime in future.

I just completed the picture framing course and highly recommend it. I did not know there was so much to learn about picture framing. I couldn’t have picked a better place. Joe went through all the details you need to know; equipment needed to open and run your own workshop, how to use the equipment (we framed our certificate and another picture), ‘pricing for profit’ & how to consult to lock in a sale. We also visited a wholesaler and signed up so as to get a wholesaler price. This week was an eye opener and I really feel I got value for money and will recommend course to friends and family. Joe’s beautiful wife Maike arranged delicious lunch which I did not expect but was pleasantly surprised. I stayed at one of the cottages on the property. It had everything I needed and more; fridge, microwave, stove, toaster, kettle, pots, glasses, cutlery & a heater!!! Clean and comfortable They both looked after me above expectations and hope to return the favour one day. I was worried about carrying my framed pictures on the plane but Joe wrapped it beautifully for me and had no hassles carrying it on as hand luggage. When leaving my uber driver got lost and joe waited with me at 6am till he arrived (30 minutes late!) At 2°C outside!!! This lovely couple went above and beyond standards. Big thanks to Joe & Maike Vermaak, I cannot thank you enough
