Intro to Joinery – Art Frame

Participants will learn to build a picture frame using reclaimed oak and join the wood using a traditional bridle joint. During the class, participants will also learn basic mat cutting, print mounting, and glass cutting.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own print or art to frame, just keep in mind the max frame size we can make is 24″ x 36″, and the width of the face frame or stile is set at a max of 2″.
