It can be hard to find just the right picture frame--especially for one-of-a-kind art--and custom frames are expensive. Solve that problem by learning how to build your own! We'll use the table saw, chop saw, and drill to construct basic frames out of poplar. Students should come to class with dimensions of the piece they want to frame, and we'll take it from there!
Students will pre-pay for materials- although if you'd like to make more than one, the cost difference can be paid the day of class to Kate.
* This class is limited to 8 individuals to prevent the spread of covid-19, please do not attend class if feeling ill, we will refund you. All students are required to wear a mask. See Fireweed's Covid policy: FAQ here
This course has 2 free seats for the BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) community to take this course at cost for the materials fee of $18. Fireweed believes in wealth redistribution while our nation has still not offered proper reparations to marginalized communities.
Taught by Kate Schiffler (@bbfurnituremn)
Hey there, I'm Kate! I have been a woodworker for over 17 years and I recently transitioned from running my small wood framing company to taking over Butcher Block Furniture Inc. where I build custom wood countertops and furniture. I am a skill collector in all types of materials and dabble in many different media. In my spare time I enjoy all the outdoor stuff, making things, reading, and hanging out with my daughter as much as possible.
Materials cost for this class is $15 and includes wood, PPE, tools upkeep, nails.
