Day 1: Matting & Mounting (10:00am-3:30pm on Saturday)
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, and 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!

Day 2: Frame Joining, Glass Cutting & Fitting (10:00am-3:30pm on Sunday)
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 Part 1 (or another you supply, up to 11×14 frame size). 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!
