Get familiar with the OGS DIY frame room and the equipment and tools so when the time comes to go into framing production, you will know exactly what to do! Students are encouraged to bring a couple of small photographs and/ or works on paper for practical application.

About the instructor: Sanders first trained in professional framing and archival practices in 1986 when she worked full time in Milwaukee's premier gallery: Bresler Eitel Art & Framing Gallery. Having worked at four additional framing galleries in the midwest, she has done every aspect of framing and frame design. Over the course of her long career as an artist and framer, she is looking forward to sharing her tips of the trade for cost effective and efficient framing.
