Since we know how expensive a custom or vintage picture frame is, and because we are inspired by the idea of open information—Frameworks Berlin has decided to offer monthly a basic framing workshop, during which you get a lot of information in a little time, plus a custom hand made frame made by you.


So come make an absolutely unique frame with professional access to Frameworks Berlin’s Workshop. We offer an introduction to the basic principles of picture framing during a 2-3 hour course, in which we will take you through the process of designing, planing, and making a frame for yourself. We will discuss styles of contemporary wooden picture frames, how to build a frame for paintings versus a frame for photography. Plus you will get full access to Frameworks unique upcycled-recycled picture frames.

Other information you will learn:

  • The most relevant elements of an image and consequently the custom picture frame
  • Professional mounting tactics, so that you do not damage your print
  • Cutting glass and backboard
  • How to cut and join moulding to create a frame
  • Some options for painting, staining, or finishing the frame
  • Frame assembly
  • Sealing and hanging methods

There is NO experience requirement, other than the desire to learn how to frame your own frame. Since the course is small, we are able to meet each participant at their individual level.

The course costs 95 & will be available on the following dates:

October 25th, 2014

November 22nd, 2014

December 14th, 2014 (SUNDAY – in cooperation with Diorama Market)
