Our next exhibition - "A Great Piece of Turf" by Kim Beck - includes lots and lots of work on paper. Today Rob basically set up a mini framers work station and framed over two dozen drawings!
First you assemble the frame bars..
and then you attach the work to a backing,
place the backing in the frame and seal it off.
just like that!
