A Bit About Us
Worimi Framing Service has quite the history, and Journey, that makes it the business that it is today.
In 1992, it was set up by the Worimi School, within the Worimi Detention Centre, with the intention for it to become a Work Experience program for the boys that were attending the school.
In time, it was opened up to various local Special Education Programs, that allowed many students from varied backgrounds to attend the framing service as a Work Experience program.
With the continued support by our local community, Worimi Framing Service became a fundraiser, for many Special Education Programs in the Hunter and finally became a privately owned family business in 2003.
Greg Heaney, became the owner, as he had been running and managing the business right from the beginning, when attendance was voluntary. Greg has grown it into a successful business, that is well supported by our valued customers.
Greg Heaney Photography became his beautiful and unique branding for the business, with many of his iconic Newcastle Photos finding homes both locally and overseas.
2019, Greg retired, and Bec Pring, another familiar face in the business spanned across 25 years, will be keeping the business growing and developing to support and inspire our local community.
Bec Pring - her Artist name - Bebbie Smythe, from Bebbie Smythe Studio, will continue to add her Artist eye and creativity to growing the Legacy that is Worimi Framing Service.
With Greg retiring, it could feel like it is the end of an era, yet, with Bec, it will be a continuum of ebb and flow and growth of this creative business, ready to support, inspire and meet all your Custom Framing needs.
