When you visit Makers' Gallery we will spend time with you looking at a range of design options, materials, methods and prices. We are sure you’ll find something which suits your artwork, your tastes and your budget.

Beware of quotes based only on size! Additional considerations that may affect the price include detail of design, materials selection, craftsmanship and conservation level. Expect to be given multiple design suggestions and quotes at your consultation.

Makers' Gallery can offer you a discount for a quantity of identical frames. Repetition in the handcrafting process reduces the time it takes to build each frame, and this will be reflected in the price.
