Class Description:

Framing on a budget and not looking to make a frame by hand from scratch?

This class will show you how to turn a cheap frame from a box store like Ikea into something that is archival and can be presented in professional contexts.

In this class you will learn how to cut UV glass to protect your art, easily archivally float your artwork on mat boards, and the basic woodworking required to reinforce a budget frame to reduce its chances of warping over time.

Note: Students are required to provide artwork dimensions to William Demaria at wdemariaart@gmail.com prior to the start of the class so that an appropriately sized frame can be purchased before the start of the class. Default frames will be white. Different color frames can be purchased if specifically requested.

Artwork must be under 20” x 26”. The price of class reflects the cost of artwork framed with UV protective glass.
