This workshop covers simple ways to frame your work without the aid of big tools and machines.
This is a hands-on workshop with heavy demonstration. Students will each make a very small practice frame of their own – a miniature study of the joints covered in the workshop.
Tools to be used: Japanese Saw, Chisel(s), Sandpaper, X-acto knives, cutting board, various glues, straight edge, clamps, etc. Artists, please bring your own Exacto with a few extra blades if you have.
From understanding why you could benefit from framing in the first place, to the daunting questions like “when do I stop creating? At the border, past the border, around the border?”.
Students will learn how a framed piece may make or break your work, as it can be a part of the work itself. Just short of miter joints, the workshop will explore a hands-on demo of butt-joints, overlaps, rabbet joints, as well as materials such as mat board, mount board, foam core, archival materials and more.
