4 Easy Steps to Wire a Frame

It seems like so long ago, yet I vividly remember presenting a whole bunch of my framed photographs for SALA (South Australia Living Artist) festival in 2010 and 2016.

More about this and my photo choices.

To ensure my artwork presented as best as possible, I purchased twenty 400mm x 500mm frames from Adelaide Photographic Wholesalers, plus had Atkins printed 20 of my favorite photographs. All up, about $1600.

But I had one slight problem with the frames: String on the reverse of the frames. As a consequence, it was all visible. See the photos for example.

Because of this I wanted to learn how to wire frames properly – and create a video showing how I learnt.

After much googling and youtubing, I discovered a few techniques. Then I did it myself. The video demonstrates it, mostly. I’ve only wired a few of my frames thus far, so for the next few frames I will re-video and ensure my fingers and hands are not covering the subject.

Now that my frames photographs will soon be displayed in the Kangaroo Island Gallery, I happily wired them – making them both stable and salable!
