* This class has prerequisites. Please see below.
If you have a work of art that you’ve been wanting to frame, this class is for you. At the first session, in the Woodworking Studio, you will learn to design, cut and assemble a frame 11 by 14 inches. At the second session, in the Woodworking Studio, professional framers will show you how to properly mat a picture to fit that frame, and how to put all the pieces together in expert fashion.
Bring a picture or drawing you want to frame. It can be any size that will fit in an 11x14 frame. (Small pictures look great in a big mat and frame!) The goal of this class is to enable you to return to the BARN Woodworking and Print & Book Studios to frame additional artwork.
Instructors: Mike Toot, Katherine Hanson and Crista Dougherty.
- Ages 14+ are welcome.

Toot is a safety monitor at BARN and has spent many hours building parts for boats and running trim for his previous home. While he likes hand tools best, he gladly reaches for power tools to help get a project assembled. Hanson was employed for 25 years as a professional framer for the Roby King Gallery. When that store closed its frame shop, she went to Julie's Frame Gallery. She and Dougherty work there now.
