In this workshop students will be shown the basics of mat cutting and mounting paper artwork.

Students will walk away with the confidence to mat their own work and gain some understanding of art preservation. A range of techniques and styles will be demonstrated. Limited hands-on experience will be available. 

All supplies will be provided. Please bring a small piece of artwork on paper to be matted.
