Making a beautiful image with historic or alternative processes requires a lot of hard work, careful craftsmanship and a strong commitment to an aesthetic. The same amount of attention should go toward framing your images. In this workshop, participants will learn how to mat and frame photographs from Rheytchul Kimmel in the Museum’s Creative Services Department, where images are prepared for in-house exhibition and traveling shows. Process Historian Mark Osterman will demonstrate how hard images such as tintypes and ambrotypes can be mounted.
Audience: Limited to six, this hands-on workshop is for anyone interested learning safe and beautiful ways of mounting and framing modern or historic photographs.
Tuition: $475/$450 members, plus $90 materials fee
