Martha Andreatos gave us a wonderful workshop on framing our silk pieces. She showed us how to adhere silk to a purchased canvas with matte medium, how to wrap a silk piece over a stretcher bar frame over a layer of flannel, and how to paint matte medium on the edge of a silk hanging piece to stop fraying.
