Frame it Yourself (six-session workshop)
Getting ready to show? Prepping for an exhibition? Redecorating your house? If you want to learn how to present your artworks using high quality materials and methods, then this workshop is for you! This general picture framing workshop will give you the opportunity to learn and participate in the framing design, measurement, mounting, matting, glazing (glass cutting), and assembly of your own works of art. In addition, you will be exposed to archival framing methods, sources of materials, and specialty framing.
