Stretchers, Canvas & Priming

Stretcher bars

We supply pre-mitred, stretcher bar sets that can be self assembled. We also offer a bespoke made-to-order service. Our stretcher bars and braces are made from kiln-dried, finger jointed, premium quality, sustainable Baltic Pine. Lengths are straight, knot free and have low moisture content, minimizing movement.

  • Pre mitred and slotted bars start at 20cm and go up to 2 metres in length; by buying pairs you can create whatever dimension you require.
  • Made-to-order stretchers have fixed corners and are available in both single and two way profiles of various sizes. Again we¬†can accommodate virtually any length combination from 20cms to 2 metres.

Canvas and stretching service

Most types of canvas are in stock or can be supplied. Additionally we offer a canvas stretching service so you can concentrate on creating rather than preparing! Canvas can be unprimed or primed. Finishes include gesso, oil and acrylic primers.

Restoration and renewal

Stretchers are a valuable asset, if you want to recycle or restore, we can remove old canvasses and replace with new. Alternatively we can re-stretch unmounted paintings and reframe for you. We would be pleased to talk you through the options.
