Touting a degree in Fine Arts, Framing Dames owner Catherine Hawthorn helms art classes and assists her customers in tastefully preserving their work and memorabilia with custom framing. Adults and kids aged 6–13 can learn how to draw, paint, and sculpt in a variety of classes and workshops, then hone their creative skills at home through a wide selection of art supplies available for purchase. On the framing side of the shop, the crew encloses two-dimensional masterpieces or napkins commemorating a first taste of nachos in acid-free materials designed for museum-quality protection. Three-dimensional objects, such as jerseys, can also be preserved by framing with matte and glass. In support of her community and charities, Catherine keeps a gallery dedicated to local artists and works to raise funds for organizations such as Doctors Without Borders. She shows off her skills and shares her vast knowledge in her webinar series.
