No Photo Yesterday, I was attending a Matting and Framing workshop at Project Basho in Philadelphia, PA. instructed by Tsuyoshi Ito.
Learning how to matte and frame my photographs is something I all ways wanted to do, but never had the time and I wasn’t all ways happy with the framing shop results. It’s hard to find one that does it to the guide lines of “The Libary of Congress” which is the gold standard for archivists.
I have to say I had the most wonderful experience at Project Basho participating in the matting and framing class. The lecture covered all the issues and trade offs of matting and framing. The hands on session was excellent and provided me with the skill and confidence to produce my on art work in a new and higher quality level.Â I also felt that working in a small class size produces the best learning results which is how Tsuyoshi Ito works. As a instructor Tsuyoshi Ito is at the top and is also able teach the art of matting and framing in a special way, with an appreciation for the art and the process.
I came away from this workshop excited,Â educated and thrilled about the possibilities of matting and framing and what that can give to create a different look to my photographs. I highly recommend this workshop for any photographer who would like to take there art presentations to a higher level.
