Frame making may look simple but it is a skill that escapes many.  For a frame to properly do its job it has to be perfect, any mistake can be a distraction that takes away from the artwork it surrounds.  This class will focus on skills essential to making square and rectangular frames.

 

If you have ever had a piece of artwork framed you know its not cheap.  In fact the frame may cost more than the artwork.  Patrick will show you how to use shop made jigs to create beautiful frames.  

 

Recommended for anyone looking to improve their accuracy.  Each student will walk away with atleast one frame, roughly 10 X 14 inches.
