At Tweed Art, all our framing meets the criteria of the Fine Art Trade Guild’s Commended Framer qualification. The qualification was launched nearly twenty years ago to distinguish skilled framers from the semi-skilled and to provide the public with a recognised statement of excellence of both craftsmanship and service. More than 600 framers have gained the coveted GCF qualification, but Toby is the only one in the Borders to do so.
The process of framing that we use at Tweed Art is based on protecting your image so that it can last for as long as 300 years. Every image that we deal with, be it watercolour, oil painting, football shirt or cross-stitch, has its own process.
In order to help you decide which frame and mount work best for your artwork here is a bit of background on the proper materials and procedures for framing. Using the correct materials will help keep your print or drawing safe and guard its value, now and for years to come.
