Canvas Stretching

The most common artwork requiring a stretcher is a painted canvas. It may never have been stretched before, or it may have been stretched, but removed from the frame since and rolled up for transportation.


Other items we can stretch include fabrics such as batiks. All of our stretchers are custom made and dovetail joined, meaning they have a mitred m&t joint allowing pegs to be inserted in the corners that can be ‘tapped in’ to make the canvas taught if it has loosened a little over time. The stretchers come in a range of depths, from 2-5cms deep. Commonly a stretched canvas doesn’t require a frame, however our large range of tray frames can further enhance the display of your painting.

Please contact us via our contact page with the size of your painting and we can let you know the cost.
