As many of our readers would know, Brian Wolf is a highly respected educator and has a long history of visiting Australia and engaging with the local industry. His book, Cutting, Carving and Decorating Mats has been a long time favourite among Australian framers and he has been demonstrating his mat decorating techniques at conventions and workshops around the world since the late 70s. He now works with Wizard International in areas including education, events, and design content.

Now local framers who have admired his designs will be able to meet Brian in person at this year’s Art & Frame trade fair in Sydney. And we have added a new session to the seminar program that will feature Brian demonstrating some of his techniques with examples and opportunities for questions from the audience.

As Brian says in his presentation description:

“No matter how the picture framing business continues to evolve, your ingenuity with matting will always set your business apart.  Mat decoration takes many forms.  Whether it is a three colour mat or an ornamental pen line, the computerised mat cutter makes it possible and profitable.”

The ideas demonstrated in the seminar will also be useful to those that use manual machines and hand decorating techniques.

The seminar will be held on Saturday at the show from 11.30am-12.30pm. Please visit the seminar program page for further details and booking information, or phone our office on 03 5975 3677.
