The Frame Workshop (owned by Partners Ken and Gillian Fone) have been established Framers at exhibitions since 1984 and during that time has built a reputation for a professional service. We are particularly experienced in framing textiles which are traditionally hand-laced for stretching and never stapled or stuck down!
We are especially well-known for our signature hand-cut mounts, particularly on Lavender & Lace designs, where we scallop the mount to follow the design. In the case of the Celtic designs we incorporate a hand-cut Celtic motif into the mount. We are always happy to advise and guide you with your project.
In 1990 we opened our first retail shop in Hanley, Stoke on Trent and in 2004 moved to our current larger premises at 151-153 Marsh Street North, Hanley. As well as our established framing service our new premises enabled us to expand with a Gallery (incorporating Limited and Open Edition Prints) together with our Craft Department which includes Cross-Stitch, Tapestry and Card-making supplies.
Most recent in 2006 is our new range called Molten Designs. This is a product called Friendly Plastic which is used for a vast range of crafts. The response to this new range has been tremendous and it will be shown and demonstrated by us at various exhibitions.
We offer a local comprehensive framing service of various items including Sports Memorabilia. A couple of examples are below but more can been seen on our sports page
We also stock DMC & Anchor Embroidery Silks, Anchor Tapestry Wools, Mill Hill Beads, Kreinik Threads, Aida & Evenweave Fabrics, Tapestry Canvas, Friendly Plastic, Cross-Stitch Kits, Tapestry Canvasses and basic craft items. We also have a selection of ready-made frames.
