Framing of objects, shirts, fibre art and memorabilia in shadow boxes.
Picture framing is the obvious way to present photos and art on paper or canvas, but it also provides an original stylish means of displaying and preserving garments, objects and memorabilia.
We can help you create a perfect framed souvenir out of almost any object: Rugby shirts, christening gowns and other garments; medals or badges, framed together with photos and certificates; cross stitch and embroidery, shoes, dried flowers or cake decorations, whatever you treasure we frame it.
Restoration of Artworks
If you would like to frame a picture that needs restoration we offer a free referral service to a professional paper conservator. Her service ranges from removing the artwork from acidic backgrounds, treating foxing, repairing tears and losses, draft cleaning to remove dust, float washing, pressing etc.
The conservator will come to the gallery, assess the damage, give advice on treatment and a free quote. If you confirm the quote the conservator will pick up the artwork from the gallery execute the treatment and deliver it back to the gallery for framing. Once it is framed you can pick it up ready to hang.
