Liz Frankland

It’s sipping and painting, but not as you know it.
Our next up “frame(makers)” workshop is specially curated for those who have always wanted to know more about art “territories” but never had the time — or simply the know-how of where to start.

With cocktail in hand, meet frame(maker) and frame-favorite artist Liz Frankland as she focuses on classic pop culture from the 1940s-70s here in our frame(makers) space. Liz will start us off with a mix of lecture (the interesting kind)…before we each face our own canvas and palette of paints. Guided through and infused with the knowledge of brushwork, color, and composition in Liz’s iconic loose but realistic pop culture style…we will each work start-to-finish on a piece our own to take home, flowing and creating, with Liz always on hand for assistance.

Thoughtful, playful, and a noble use of your newfound frame(makery) skills,
we’re mildly smitten (to say the least) at the idea of gifting a handmade piece of art, frame-style, in the season ahead.

Book yourself in: your secret is safe with us!
Thank us later, but Hanukkah is really early this year, starting November 28th. Yes, seriously.

Wednesday, October 27th
$115 per person + tax and service fee
Each workshop is limited to 24 guests and includes the materials fee to take home your own piece of art on canvas.

Please note: Being able to Paint Pop Culture at frame has nothing to do with having an artist’s touch! The paints, which will be used are permanent so please bear that in mind when picking what you wear (sleeves and wrists, in particular, can be at risk of getting paint on them).

A two-hour hands-on painting workshop with artist Liz Frankland. Plus your finished art to take home.

 a-la-carte beer, wine ++ frame cocktails to sip while you learn.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

Mark Kurlyandchik, Detroit Free Press

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
