Large flat textiles often require mounting onto a support frame (strainer). Finger joined pinewood, sealed with an acrylic sealant, is used to prepare the strainer. An appropriate mounting fabric is stretched and stapled to the mount. The textile is then hand stitched to the mount.
Small textiles may also be secured to a flat mount. Mounts are prepared with acid free Fome-Cor board that is covered with fabric. The textile is then hand stitched to the fabric covering the mount.
While we do not offer on-site framing services , we work in conjunction with local framers with long time experience in archival framing. New frames can be provided, or original frames can be restored as needed and re-used.
