Update on Re-Opening
We have had a lot of queries about when we will reopen the shop.
As most of you know we have 5 children and will be
continuing to home school them 3 days per week until they are allowed back to
school, this has an impact on the amount of time we can spend in the shop.
The shop will be open from Tuesday June 16th appointments are required for framing consultations. A strict 1 in 1 out policy will be implemented, we have installed a bell on the front door please wait to be let in. Various days and times will be available for appointments depending on our availability, please check the appointment availability or call us on 07870450384 to book.
Giftware, cards and artwork will be available to browse and buy in the shop on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursday, and Saturday although opening times may vary, but the rules of 1 in and 1 out will apply along with Hand sanitiser prior to entering the shop and touching any products.
As mentioned our current plan is to operate an appointment only system for picture framing consultation, as
we can control the times and flow of work this way.
We also ask you to fill out and enquiry form as this will help us deal with your enquiry. Enquiry form
We are planning to use video calling where clients are not able to come into the shop due to shielding and isolating.
Collection and Delivery will also be available within the local area, this will incur a small charge.
The Health and safety of our clients is paramount and we will ask clients to wear a face covering during there consultation in the shop along with hand sanitiser being supplied prior to entering the shop.
We will also request the clients refrain from touching the frame and moulding samples during the consultation.
Our timescales will be altered but we will always try to work towards a deadline if required.
As you can appreciate this is the early stages of our plan and these processes may evolve as we assess how they work in practice, your feedback would be appreciated as well as any recommendations.
Above all we want to thank you all for your continued support and orders over the last couple of months we truly appreciate it.
We hope that we can open up properly in the coming months.

Leigh was born and raised in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where he resided for the first twenty years of his life. Lambert began to draw as soon as he could hold a pencil, with his family quickly recognising his artistic flair. As he progressed through school his exceptionally detailed creations captured the attentions of his teachers, who admired his canny knack for capturing a view. However, the artist describes himself as mostly self taught, having received no formal art qualifications or training.
Lambert relocated to Warwickshire with his family in 1996, where he focused on the development of his technique. It was on leaving Newcastle that he began to appreciate the nature of his upbringing; what he had once seen as a concrete jungle now seeming strangely beautiful. Taking inspiration from his childhood, Lamberts pieces have a strong sense of nostalgia, evoking fond memories of a youth that many can relate to.
Lambert is an accomplished artist across a range of media, most commonly working in oils on board. His use of colour is minimal, optimistically applying splashes only to the figures that play amidst the otherwise monochromatic landscapes, capturing the joy and vitality of youth.
Working from his garden studio, the artist has achieved great success in recent years. In 2014 he was shortlisted as Best Up and Coming Artist in the prestigious Fine Art Trade Guild Awards, and consequently his works are hugely sough-after. Limited editions often sell out within weeks, and waiting lists are in place for those hoping to acquire original paintings
