I always build my own stretchers for my paintings because I can make better stretchers than what I can buy, plus I can customize the sizes. I’m excited to show you how to build your own with my “How to Build a Stretcher” video I published through the Unaccredited College of Klaire on Patreon. I will guide you through all the steps it takes to create your own stretcher. I’ll show you how to cut the lumber, prepare the stretcher bars, assemble the stretcher, and add crossbars. Building a stretcher can be intimidating, but you’ll get a lot out of this demonstration if you like to make artwork on canvas. I’ll show you the exact same technique I used when I build my own stretchers so you can start creating your own too!
