Archival Framing with Reclaimed Materials

August 16, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


In this workshop taught by Kate VanVliet, participants will learn how to manipulate a found frame to mount paper objects archivally. This is perfect for art as well as family photographs and keepsakes, as all need archival framing in order to preserve them for future generations. Traditional archival framing is expensive and time consuming. Kate’s workshop shows how individuals can use easily available materials to make their own archival frames at a fraction of the cost. Kate will demonstrate how to deconstruct the frame, clean it, and mount the item in each frame, and will consult with participants about their pieces to help them find the right frames and materials.

Please bring:  one item that you want to frame – artwork, photograph, or mountable object.

Workshop Cost:
$5 per person plus the cost of chosen reclaimed frame from the re
