To frame or not to frame? That is the question – and not just for textile art! We chat about some of the various ways we’ve finished and framed our textile work, and as a bonus, you can watch a video version of our chat over on our new YouTube channel!
As I mentioned at the start of the video, my tools and materials for framing include:
- Double sided sticky tape and masking tape (both acid-free)
- Heavy-duty stapler
- Bevel-edge mount cutter
- Ruler and pencil
- Invisible thread and nylon fishing line
- Foam core
- Tray frame or box frame
- Pre-made mounts that include a backing board and cellophane sleeve.
Mentioned in this episode:
I’ve been reading Meditation and Mindfulness by Andy Puddicombe and it’s been very useful – especially when I’m trying to sleep! A few pages and I’m nodding off…It’s a great book, and it works.
Headspace is the app created by Andy and his business partner – you’ve probably come across it. Recommended.
You can find more about what Gina’s up to here.
The music is Dear Autumn by Ikson.
