A good frame can both enhance and define an artwork, and choosing the right frame can be critical in elevating the work itself as well as the space in which it is placed. We have invested considerable developing our framing allowing us to offer a range of distinctive and contemporary hand-finished styles, suitable for both home, gallery, and business spaces. With a commitment to quality and preservation, all our framing adhere strictly to either our Conservation Standards or Museum Standards, safeguarding every artwork. Our framing can be suited to a range of objects from original artworks, works on paper, prints, canvases, and photographs; through to documents, textiles, ephemera and keepsakes. We are happy to discuss any framing requirements you may have.
A correctly stretched canvas offers a simple and elegant way to display artwork. Stretching can be standalone or combined with framing to enhance the presentation further. We have put together a range of different stretchers to suit any particular canvas. Our Exhibition Stretchers are built to the highest standards from laminated kiln-dried pine, including expandable mitred corners, and mortise and tenon cross bars where appropriate. For those that require an even higher level of stretching, Museum Stretchers are built combining laminated kiln-dried pine and aluminium for extra strength, perfect for extra large canvases. We also offer more simple stretching options, for exhibitions and any form of short-term stretching.
Acrylic framing presents a modern and elegant solution for exhibiting works of art and other objects. This technique provides a clear and unobstructed view from all angles, whilst being lightweight and well-suited for larger frames. Each acrylic frame is crafted with precision and attention to detail, including beveled edges and secure split-baton hangings. A wide array of translucent colours are available, including clear, frosted, mirrored, and bright neon options. For increased protection, frames may also be constructed using UV-protective conservation acrylic.
