MAKE YOUR OWN CUSTOM FRAMES AT FRAMEWORKS — RECOMMENDED BY BIANCA KENNEDY

MAKE YOUR OWN CUSTOM FRAMES AT FRAMEWORKS — RECOMMENDED BY BIANCA KENNEDY

As an artist, I find framing to be one of the most expensive and unsatisfying parts of my work. So I was all the more pleased to discover Frameworks via the Saloon Berlin artist network. This year, the Kreuzberg framing provider has launched the Neukölln Britz-based “The Open Studio“, letting you learn to frame pictures yourself with no previous experience required. Located in a charming Industriehof, the space offers work stations for rent with instructions and staff on hand to advise the best frame for a given piece. Once you decide, the materials are prepared for you by the studio team: all you have to do is assemble them at your work station. Managers Claire and Barbara are also available for more in-depth tuition: besides renting work stations, the duo offer intensive four-hour DIY courses that explain the basics of frame making. If, on the other hand, you don’t want to get hands-on, you can head to the Frameworks shop in Kreuzberg where you can order custom-made frames or buy one of the ready-made recycled wood options.
