Framing Workshop

Framing Workshop

Hands-on mounting, matting, and framing your own prints.

For people taking the printing workshop on July 9th, 2022 who wish to add the Framing workshop, the cost will be $450. For technical reasons, please sign up and pay the $500 fee and $50 will be refunded to your account.

In this hands-on workshop participants will be introduced to a variety of framing options, with tips on which are best suited for various types of photography. Participants will take home finished framed products that they have made themselves.

Participants will:

  • create their own displays on Gatorboard;
  • put together a traditional frame with glazing, mats, backing boards, dust covers, hangers and all else needed for a classic display;
  • create an open-frame display.

After spending time printing images that I would like to hang on my wall (as well as the walls of friends, family, and perhaps others), Les’s framing workshop gave me valuable insight into some of the various techniques one can use to display images. Covering everything from the cost-effective utilization of Gatorboard to display images, to the soup-to-nuts construction of a traditional frame — including frame construction from framing sticks (I may still have sawdust in my shoes from cutting our own wood frames), mat cutting, glazing, etc. — Les’s framing workshop was a superb and completely hands-on introduction to the world of image display. Simply put: bravo! Greg Stuhlman

Finished mount, mat, and frames.

The workshop will include demonstrations and hands-on work making their own frames under Les’ supervision. Participants will leave the workshop with at least one example of each of the three frames.

Prints to be mounted will be supplied by Les, but participants are encouraged to bring their own prints with them for mounting. All prints for the workshop must be on 13 x 19" paper (including 2" borders).

All framing materials are included as is use of all tools needed for construction. No prior knowledge of tools is required. Due to its hand-on nature, the Framing workshop is restricted to four participants.

Les has been framing his Limited Edition prints for decades and will share his techniques, tips, resources and guidance throughout the workshop experience.

Once you register we will send you a detailed email with all the information you will need. We will be happy to send you a list of recommended lodging in Havre de Grace or nearby.

No refunds after June 1st, 2022.
