Thank you for your interest in becoming a picture framer at the Framers Workshop. As our turnover is low, we are not always looking for framers. However, if you have experience, or are truly interested in at least a years commitment as a trainee, please contact us and stay in touch with us if we are not hiring when you call.
We occasionally hire both experienced and trainee picture framers. We consider motivated trainees who are new to framing to work in our do-it-yourself framing area. Trainees help customers put their framing projects together. Trainees have the opportunity to learn all aspects of picture framing, including but not limited to care of art, framing design, cutting, and assembly. As our training period is rigorous, we will only train individuals who make a commitment to stay on the job for at least a year and who can work at least half time. For our upstairs custom workshop we hire only experienced framers. Custom framers must have a breadth of experience and must have worked as a custom framer for at least two years in a full service framing shop.
The Framers Workshop is a family owned full service custom and do-it-yourself frame shop near the University of California at Berkeley. We have been in business at the same location since 1977. We provide customers with a very large selection of archival materials and picture frame moulding styles.
Our knowledgeable framing staff is trained to provide professional design services, whatever the project. Our framers abilities include all aspects of cutting mats, moulding (wood or metal), mounting, cutting glass, Plexiglas cutting, shadow box specialties, stretching and stitching of textiles or canvas paintings, and a host of other specialties.
The Framers Workshop is a high volume shop with competitive prices and we have a solid, loyal customer base. Our staff provides a professional, positive, and friendly approach to all our customers. We pride ourselves on our staff and we only hire framers who work well with the public. We train both novices and experienced framers to our exacting standards. We offer a pleasant working environment and give our full time workers vacation days, sick days, and a partially paid health care program. We are open seven days and one evening a week. Work schedules are different for each framer so that we can accommodate all our open hours.
