Mat Cutting

Watch for a Fall Workshop Schedule

Of course you can go to someplace like Michael’s to buy your mats, but why not save yourself the bother and learn how to cut your own mats.  In this 4 hour hands on workshop, you’ll learn how to calculate mat sizes and choose your mat boards.  Then you’ll spend a good portion of the time learning how to cut perfect single mats and learning the simple trick to cutting accurate double mats.  

All practice matting material, white and black mat board, is included in the price.  Larger mat boards, for example 16″ x 20″ will be supplied for $5 ea.  If you want, bring a photograph(s) to mat yourself.
