Preservation expert Hugh Phibbs will present five sessions at PPFA 2015, January 25-28, at The Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, concurrent with the West Coast Art & Frame Expo/The National Conference. Special pricing allows PPFA members to take advantage of both events, with convention passes and individual pricing available.

PPFA welcomes all framers to our sessions and events.

Hugh will lead off Sunday morning with an introductory level class, “Understanding Framing Components,” sponsored by Tru Vue; and in the afternoon, teach an advanced class, “Designing With New Materials.”

On Monday afternoon, he will provide new methods for “Advanced Hinging,” then teams up with Jim Miller, MCPF, GCF, in “Stump The Expert,” a “live” version of the technical advice offered at the PPFA Framers Corner online forum. Bring your toughest issues and this dynamic duo will help you!

On Tuesday morning, Hugh will present a slide presentation, “Preservation Through the Ages,” that has been shown at major museums across the U.S. and Europe.
