Framing

Still @ the centre… a place in which to custom frame or find a unique ready-made

Framing? All the framing is done in the centre’s workshop with the utmost care by Noel, an experienced and dedicated framer while our creative staff will be ever so happy to help you find that perfect combination of frame, mat, filet etc. for your work… and we love inventing interesting ways of making that frame special: 3D shadow boxes, double or even triple mats, box moldings, float mounts, V grooves, artwork caught between sheets of Perspex or glass, etc. so… challenge us!

Canvas stretching? Noel is also a specialist at stretching that canvas you brought back from the other side of the world so do not hesitate to bring those in or click on this link to have more info.

We are now also the proud suppliers, for the area, of Italian company Bellini which hand makes and guilds stunning and precious moldings… for that special work of art or to indulge in a beveled mirror of exception.

PS: We stock two types of normal glass: clear & non reflex + two different Conservation ones offering 70% UV protection: Ultravue and 100% UV protection Art glass both with such an amazing clarity you’ll never believe there is glass at all!

PPS: We also stock mirror and can custom make one for you just at the right size for that wall!

PPPS: We do have some ready-made frames in stock… all unique frames made here in our workshop + some lovely “made in Australia” ones we have selected. For that standard size and a cheaper option, you should check them out!

PPPPS: We also do some mounting on Gatofoam board (stronger than normal foam board, Gatofoam can hold a hanging system). We stock white and black in 10mm and neutral in 5mm.

PPPPPS: Mat + backing Presenting your artworks and prints sandwiched between a mat board and a foam board is increasingly popular. You can then choose to shrinkwrap them too.
