Week 1: Single and Double Mat-Cutting 

Don’t let standard sizes and limited options cramp your style! Stay true to your vision and increase professionalism and potential sales by learning to do your own custom matting and mounting. In this session, we’ll cover tips to cutting perfect single and double mats.

Week 2: Mounting and Frame Joining
In week two, you will apply various conservation mounting techniques to your work pieces. We’ll discuss equipment and recommended suppliers, to help you get set up at home or in your studio. You’ll feel well equipped and eager to apply what you learn right away! In this session you’ll get exposure to various frame joining methods, and will assemble a picture frame to fit one of your workpieces from Week 1 (or another you supply, up to 11×14 frame size).

Week 3: Glazing and Project Assembly 
You will also learn safe glass cutting, tips to a dust-free assembly, and hanging hardware options. We will discuss equipment, purchasing strategy, and suppliers. Not only will you walk out with a professionally displayed and protected piece of art, but you’ll have the knowledge, resources, and confidence to do it again!

All materials provided for matting and framing. 

Please bring 1 photograph, print, or flat artwork (8″x10″ or smaller) to mat/mount, and frame!
