Technology and Craftsmanship: Can They Work Together?
Thursday, March 5 • 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Framing has always been seen by framers as a craft, and framers see themselves as true artisans, using tools of the trade to create beautiful means of enhancing and displaying art and objects. This session will explore how to mix that craftsmanship with the latest tools available to framers, including not only the technology for the creation of those framed pieces but also the tools to attract and communicate with your customers.
