Custom Frames

We know that you want your artwork to be shown to its finest advantage.  We will ensure that you are given the best advice to achieve the look that you are after…

 

We stock a large range of the best materials from which you can choose to create a unique frame that makes your artwork really standout.  All pictures are framed using traditional handmade techniques, ensuring you receive a bespoke look that best compliments your artwork.

 

After a free consultation where we  assist you to choose the materials and look that you are after, we head off to the workshop.  The consultant will then go through a process typical of the one detailed below.  Being handmade, the process allows for all of your specific needs to be met – quality product and great service are key to our operations.
