Framing Workshops

About the Course 

The novice will leave the class with the confidence, skills and design sense of a seasoned framer.  The seasoned professional will acquire the skills to advance his or her artistic abilities to the next level.  As with my picture framing, classes are customized to meet your creative and technical needs.

 I provide a five-day customized picture framing workshop in a retreat setting.You will feel refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated after spending a week in beautiful Dorena learning to enhance and refine your custom picture framing skills and artistic abilities.
