Framing Workshop

Display Event Calendar


The event was held on Sunday, March 18, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.

In this workshop we will discuss the art of mounting your photo in a frame. WH Bailey had this to say about the frame: The design of a frame must effect a transition from the existing physical location into the illusionistic realm of the artwork. This should occur graciously and imperceptibly. The frame should also prepare the eye and mind of the viewer to accept and embrace the domain of the artwork on its own terms. (From WH Bailey, in Defining Edges, published by Harry N Abrams)

There will first be a 20-minute overview where we discuss

  • The Artistic Choices in Selecting a Frame (what impacts the presentation of the photo – location of the artwork, frame style, frame color, and frame scale or size relative to the photo), and 
  • Economic Considerations - do-it-yourself (DIY) vs. having it done for you, with an emphasis on DIY.

We then engage in several exercises. The first two exercises allow us to consider how the frame impacts the presentation of the photo. For the third exercise we will bring an 11x14” matted photo to the workshop, so that each of us will assemble a metal frame and mount our 11x14” matted photos in the frame, ready to take home and display.

The cost of the workshop will be $25, which covers the cost of an 11x14” dark grey metal frame and glass.

Plan to learn some things, have fun, and get your favorite photo framed!
