Our designer produces hand painted canvases from prints, photographs or drawings. Even if you just have a rough idea of what you would like you can simply provide a sketch and we will work up a design for you. If you would like us to work from a photograph we are happy to leave out or alter the background, for example with a plain colour fading to the edges to highlight the subject. All of our designs are prepared by hand; we do not use computers for this highly skilled work.
Our designs take into account the size of the finished design, the count of the canvas you wish to use (number of holes per square inch) and whether you would like to use tapestry wool, crewel wool or silk.
We are able to provide just the painted canvas, a kit including canvas and wools or silks, or a completed piece as you prefer.
Every design is unique and everybody's requirements are different so please contact us (on 01553 340137) and we will be happy to talk through your ideas and provide a quote. If you would like to send us your design or photograph please feel free to do so, accompanied by a Design Order Form (or a covering letter containing the same information).
