MAKERS OF BESPOKE FRAMES | CONSERVATION MOUNTING & FRAMING | GILDING AND RESTORATION
We treat every picture framing job as special: a snapshot, a postcard, a medal or a sketch are all worthy. Small photographs may seem humble compared to large oil paintings, but may have taken much more time to create. Framing is an art form in presentation, but is also a skill: it is about preservation, knowledge of materials, and careful handling, all learnt over years of experience.
Real, professional framers are hard to find. Framers like us, with a genuine understanding of appropriate presentation, conservation practice, and the need for real works of art to stand out for themselves in a well considered and made setting, as well as the true expertise required for handling and manufacture. We offer hundreds of options of moulding and mountboards, as well as a range of specialist glazing, ready to frame anything that you bring to us.
We do gilding and frame restoration, provide a picture conservation service, picture installation services, and all our framing is carried out in our new, specialist workshop in Gateshead.
We have over 70 years combined experience in picture framing, and want to share our knowledge about making art look its best, and staying that way, with everyone - no matter whether you want to frame a valuable 18th Century oil painting or a quick family photograph. We’re always free to offer our advice on the best way to frame or conserve your picture, with the bottom line being that it suits you!
