Fine Art Framing, Matting & Installation

Co-sponsored by Jameson & Thompson Picture

Learn how to prepare your artwork for exhibitions big or small, just in time for Jamaica Plain Open Studio! Understand how to handle and store your artwork prior to framing, and how to select materials at a frame shop. Take a try at mat cutting. Explore different types of frames, mats, glass and hardware, and learn proper installation techniques for hanging your artwork yourself. Go home with basic skills to work on your own, and to understand better what to ask from a framing shop.

This class takes place at Jameson & Thompson Picture Framers, 15 Greenview Ave, Jamaica Plain.
