Conservation Framing is a method of framing that requires the best available materials and techniques to frame an object or artwork to protect and maintain it in its original state.

Preservation Framing

When is a frame much more than a frame? What does ‘preservation framing’ offer that ordinary framing does not? There is a world of difference between the two.

To our clients, colleagues and friends:

In these uncertain times, I thought it important to let you know that Sophie Brown Conservation Framing remains a functioning business, at least until such time as a full lock-down forces us into a break.

While in operation, we are, of course, taking all available measures for the protection of those whom we come into contact with – clients, colleagues, staff and the providers of our essential supplies, in accordance with health and medical guidelines.

By prior arrangement, we are also offering clients the option of leaving their artwork at our showroom without personal contact.  Where this is the case, we liaise with you by email afterward to discuss and confirm your preferred design, its cost, and the likely completion and delivery timeframe.

If you have artwork with us at present, be assured that we will make every effort to make it ready for you to enjoy as soon as circumstances permit.  We will keep you abreast of progress and notify you as soon as items are ready for pick-up.

If you have artwork with us awaiting collection, please contact us as soon as possible to make arrangements for collection and payment. Alternatively, we can arrange delivery of the artwork to you, once payment has been received. In either case, we would appreciate your calling us so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

Above all else, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and encouragement over the years.  We appreciate and need both, now perhaps more than ever before: so  that we can keep our doors open, remain a functioning part of our community, continue bringing the joy of displayed art to your hearts and, last but by no means least, to support our staff in this challenging hour.

With our best wishes to you,

Sophie Brown and staff (Elle, Frederique, Susie and Sian).
