Matting and Framing teaches the materials and techniques of conservation-quality framing. For display, matting and framing provides both protective and aesthetic contributions to art on paper. Students will learn about different types of enclosures, different mat styles and cutting methods, the pros and cons of different backing boards and glazing, and different methods of attaching items to a mat, some of which do not involve adhering hinges to art on paper. Lectures, illustrations, product resources, and additional informational references will be provided.
Participants in the Matting and Framing course work through sections on their own. Instructor Susan Duhl is available for scheduled email support. Materials and resources include online literature, slide lectures, dialog between students and online chats led by the instructor. The course is limited to 20 participants.
Matting and Framing lasts four weeks. Please sign up at http://www.museumclasses.org and pay at http://www.collectioncare.org/tas/tas.html If you have trouble please contact Helen Alten at firstname.lastname@example.org
