At Campbelltown Framing Gallery we have many years experience framing tapestry.
People create tapestries at all hours of the day and night. And the time to create is seldom planned – it just happens. So, for many the framing of their tapestry is a distant thought until the work is finished. The piece of work represents many hours of peace and tranquility or many hours of frustrations – but the outcome deserves being preserved for posterity.
We will create a frame to suit your tapestry. Framing tapestry is not just selecting any old frame – it should work with the tapestry to enhance it. The frame might be plain, guilded or even neoclassical and the right colour will also make or brake your work.
Matting when Framing Tapestry
A mat board surrounds the tapestry – it can be any colour but are usually gold, creamy or even earthy colours. Again this will enhance your work. Like frames, the mat board should not become the focus of attention. Your tapestry should always be the main attraction.
Framing any fabric, paper or canvas requires great attention. At Campbelltown Framing Gallery we do not use MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard). Framing should protect your tapestry – MDF can cause problems with moisture and ultimately destroy your work. Just check with us first and we’d be happy to walk you through the process.
We have people from all walks of life framing their tapestries with us. Women and men, young and old. We have been in the framing business for over sixty years and have framed umpteen thousands of works in that time. And with every challenge we have found a solution.
Framing tapestry is an art in itself. All our products are acid free (including our attitude). And at Campbelltown Framing Gallery we have the experience and passion to help.
