Fabric Framing Voucher - 1 Day course


Through clear explanation, demonstration and your own “hands on” practice, you will learn about:

1. The specific requirements in framing fabrics by taking account of the fabric base used in the artwork
2. The age and style of the piece and conservation principles applicable to the process
3. The preparation of the fabric prior to framing
4. How best to provide an adequate support and mount

Three options will be explored and practised:

1. Lacing;
2. Pinning to foam mountboard
3. Tight fit through square cut mountboard

You will also look at general principles used in preparing some other types of fabric based art for framing, including stretching a canvas over wooden frames, sewing in quilts, stapling to board.

You will then choose a method best suited to mounting your artwork, before being guided through your own framing project:

1. Preparing the artwork for mounting 2. Creating a (sink)mount 3. Making and assembling a frame and preparing the picture for hanging
