The custom framing done at the Workshop employs archival materials and ultra-violet filtering glazing with glass or Plexiglas to help safeguard the future condition of each piece. We have a large selection of museum-quality, period style frames in a variety of finishes and a range of prices. We offer advice as to the appropriate choice for stylistic accuracy in framing and tasteful, functional matting.
We also work in conjunction with a frame restorer and eglomise glass expert, who is an excellent craftsman with a true understanding of period frames and a fine sensitivity for repairing structure and finish without disturbing their aged appearance.
For larger mounted objects such as quilts, flags and banners or other oversized textiles, we usually recommend a strong powder-coated metal frame. These frames provide the structural strength when hanging a large piece, and can allow for back viewing of double-sided textiles as well as further framing within a decorative frame, if so desired.
