Principles that guide us:

Community — Family, Artists & Makers We’re a family-run business that started in 2014. Based in the heart of Hackney, our team is made up of highly skilled craftspeople who are either artists themselves, or have a history in the museum and heritage sector. Inspiration comes in lots of different ways at Frame – and we have grown our business through imagination, collaboration and the continued support from our local community of artists, galleries and friends.

Bespoke Service At the heart of our studio is the relationship between the client and our brilliant team of artists and technicians. From designing, cutting and sanding to joining, staining and fitting — we offer a bespoke service where every detail is considered. Above all, no matter what size our client’s project is, our process is simple, approachable and tailored to their needs.

Exceptional Quality & Craftsmanship We believe in exceptional quality and fine craftsmanship. From well-loved traditional materials to inventive contemporary methods — we aspire to make frames that are beautiful and completely unique. All of our materials are environmentally sustainable and sourced with consideration. We’re proud to have long established relationships with the best paper, metal and wood suppliers in the UK.

Preservation & Care: We’re committed to conservation framing for the museum, gallery and home. We specialise in the highest quality museum-standard framing techniques, which means that our client’s artwork will be beautifully preserved for years to come.
