Mat, Frame and Wire Workshop


Thursday October 25th, 7-9pm

Framing your art with glass and a mat is a framing option used for works on paper, prints, photos and anything that needs to be mounted and protected by the glass.  Framing art and photos this way requires using appropriate materials and techniques to ensure the piece is framed properly, securely and attractively.

During this 2-hour class, the instructor will demonstrate this framing method on one of her own paintings by using the hinging technique of matting and then completing the framing process by wiring it correctly.  After the demonstration, the students will mat, frame and wire one of their own pieces – while the instructor assists.

After registering for the class, students will receive e-mail with the list of supplies for the class.  Students should register at least a week before class to give themselves enough time to purchase or collect the supplies they will need.

It is recommended, but not required, to take “Let’s Talk About Framing” (formerly “The Basics of Framing”) before taking this class.


This class is given by Hillary Binder-Klein, a self-taught artist who has been creating art her whole life and framing it on her own for about 35 years. She has exhibited her art, framed by her, at art shows and galleries throughout New Jersey since 1983.  Hillary is an associate member of the Guild of Creative Art, a member of the Belmar Arts Council, the Art Alliance of Monmouth and the Monmouth County Arts Council. Hillary has taught at the Teen Arts Festivals in Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex. She has also taught at the Teen Arts Festival in Union for the last 13 years.
