Description: Matting and Framing teaches the materials and
techniques of conservation-quality framing. For display, matting and
framing provides both protective and aesthetic contributions to art
on paper. Students will learn about different types of enclosures,
different mat styles and cutting methods, the pros and cons of
different backing boards and glazing, and different methods of
attaching items to a mat, some of which do not involve adhering
hinges to art on paper. Lectures, illustrations, product resources,
and additional informational references will be provided.

Logistics: Participants in the Matting and Framing course work
through sections on their own. Instructor Susan Duhl is available
for scheduled email support. Materials and resources include online
literature, slide lectures, dialog between students and online chats
led by the instructor. The course is limited to 20 participants.
