Education: Learn mat board cutting for your images with Christine and Sue.
Mat boards and cutters supplied.
Everyone needs mat boards for their images. Well worth attending.
The Mat Board Work Shop was really successful. 14 attended and Christine did an excellent job and although it’s not rocket science, it is quite a technical process. We had enough material to do the job. The ALTO’s 1501 Mat Board Cutter was used by Christine and seemed to be the best one around at the moment. Everyone found it really helpful. - Sue
