Build your own picture frame. Saturday and Sunday, July 14th and 15th, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm both days. No experience necessary.
In this weekend workshop, participants will build their own solid birch picture frame (up to 16" x 20") using archival and acid-free materials. Michael will take participants through the processes of:
- ripping frame stock from birch 1x4s,
- choosing the right size of frame for their artwork,
- mitring corners,
- cutting window mats,
- float mounting,
- cutting glass, and
- assembling their frames.
All materials (including solid birch and archival white mat board) are provided as part of the course.
**As cutting wood will require use of a table saw and a mitre saw, for participants not familiar or comfortable with these tools, the instructors will cut frame stock for them.
Dates: Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, July 14th and 15th.
Instructor: Michael Peterson, Director, Void Gallery
Cost: $175 + service fees
