You’ve got art/photography/souvenirs and you need to frame it fast for your home, a show or a gift. This class will go over the basics of simple picture framing and options on how to mat and frame a picture. You’ll learn the history of picture frames, what materials go into a frame, and how to cut a mat. Students will use their own chosen 4 x 6 image to mat for a 8 x 10 frame and leave with framed art that is ready to hang.
Supply List: A few 4 x 6 images (postcard or photograph), your own 8 x 10 picture and an 8x10 frame from a thrift store (with glass or plexi) or craft store.
