Picture Framing Basics on Feb. 25
HARDWICK – Join certified picture framer Beth Meachem on Saturday, Feb. 25, from 1 p..m. to 5 p.m., at GRACE to learn an overview of picture framing techniques, philosophy on how to approach a framing project and hands-on activities that take a project from beginning to end. Participants will learn how to determine sizing for a framing project, learn how to cut a mat, mount artwork to archival standards and put artwork into a frame. Participants are asked to bring a small piece of artwork they would like to frame to the class-no larger than 10”x 14”. All skill levels are welcome.
