picture Framing 101
instructed by molly nelko

Do you have artwork that needs a frame?

Bring it to Kentuck, and come learn how to save yourself money in picture framing costs! In this two-hour class, we will go over picture sizing and how to cut a mat with proper dimensions. We will discuss design techniques and also learn about proper archiving materials and mounting techniques.

No frame will be provided. We will provide white matboard only, mat cutter, foam core, and all necessary hardware. If you have a frame you would like to use, please bring it and we will cut materials to fit. Otherwise, each participant will leave with a product ready for either a standard size picture frame, or a piece prepped for a custom frame.
