DIY Gallery Style Matting and Framing Series CHICAGO

10/28/2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm CDT

Learn intermediate woodworking skills by building a frame in this 3 part series!

Schedule: This is a 3 part series. There is exactly one week in between each session; the same time and day of the week (ex: Saturdays at 10:30am)

In this three-day workshop, participants will bring an artwork on paper (perhaps a drawing, watercolor, family photo, concert poster, postcard, playing card, ticket stub… anything on paper that’s no larger than 18×24”) and learn how to frame it in a gallery-quality box frame. We will professionally mat the artwork, design and build the frame, and mount the matted piece in the frame. The principles and techniques covered in this class can easily be applied to framing projects of any scale.

This is an intermediate level class. Prior experience with woodworking tools is helpful.
