Replacement mattes

Take a look at the frames on your wall. Do any of the matte  edges look dirty or brown?  This is a sure sign that acids in the mounting board are degrading the artwork beneath. Don't delay. Get the old mattes replaced with conservation quality mountboard.

Simple solution at The PhotoWorkshop.

Small frames upto A4 just $10 plus the cost of the matte. Larger frames $15 plus cost of the matte. Includes new pins on the back of the frame and new tape.

Frame repair

If you have a precious frame that is damaged most can be saved. Bring it along and have a chat with John. Every frame will be different so difficult to give a price without seeing.

 

 

 

Picture Framing Workshops

Picture framing is very expensive simply because it is labour intensive. This practical course gives you a day using professional equipment with the idea that you can subsequently hire the gear to make your own frames. Class size is limited to just 4 students to ensure everyone gets a full hands-on experience.
