Gallery Services

Framing leaflet


With two Guild Commended framers in our work rooms, headed by Nettie Iles, who gives personal technical and aesthetic advice, we take our framing very seriously. We offer a comprehensive service from standard framing to full conservation framing, with acid-free over mounts and barrier board protection as well as with conservation or museum quality glass to order.

 An appointment is not necessary, bring your work of art along to the gallery and we can guide you through the many framing options and  quote for the work while you wait. We are open from 9.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday.


We work with fully qualified restorers who specialise in oil on canvas and board and in watercolours, etchings, photographic work and paper conservation. Bring your paintings to the Gallery to have an opportunity to discuss the work with our highly qualified restorers.
