Hanging art is easier said than done. Learn the basics of installing framed and unframed artwork from a professional gallery technician, as well as how to creatively problem-solve challenging situations. This workshop will cover fundamental techniques for hanging work safely and securely on different wall types, as well as the basics of layout for different spaces. It is essential for anyone who wants to understand how to best display their artwork. It will be mainly theoretical, so no need to bring your hammer!
Register online or by calling the Creative Manitoba office (204-927-2787) or emailing Aaron at [email protected]
Cash payments will be taken at the door on the night of the workshop.
