Instructor: Naomi Lipsky

Sunday | January 15, 2023 | 1:00-4:00 pm | all levels | $45 | lecture | Falls Church Arts Gallery

Learn the pros and cons of various approaches to framing your artwork. The presentation will begin with a quick discussion of acid-free vs regular materials. It will then go into detail on all the components of a frame “package” and review the many choices at each step. Naomi will also discuss the costs and benefits of framing DIY with ready-made materials vs. custom DIY vs. going to a frame shop. Tools and materials will be reviewed, with ballpark figures for each choice.
