Frame mouldings are sourced both locally and imported, giving us access to a large range, many of which are not readily available.

A speciality of the workshop is our gesso finished frames, finished to the highest quality and available on any of the profiles we stock.

We only use matt boards of Conservation or Museum grade to preserve the condition of your artwork.

Computerised matt cutting with the most up to date software provides the most accurate end results.We offer a range of Conservation glazing products providing UV protection from New Zealand's extreme light. These are available in clear glass, Museum glass with virtually nil reflection, and Gallery grade UV Acrylic for oversize pieces.

Acrylic Display Cases

Our custom made display cases are designed to display a variety of artifacts and artworks, providing an elegant design solution for any three dimensional object.

Canvas Stretching

We use top grade, custom made cedar stretchers for all our stretching requirements. Paintings that have been removed from their original stretchers for shipping can be restretched onto a new, stable cedar stretcher.


Our trained conservators provide a full restoration service, preserving and repairing damaged works of art.

They are experienced in dealing with a variety of media and surfaces from canvas to the most fragile works on paper.
