The Alchemist offers custom archival picture framing for artworks, photographs, documents, objects and memorabilia.
We offer contemporary style with museum quality at affordable prices.
We believe not only in the presentation of an artwork, but equally in the preservation of the artwork. We have a great selection of timber mouldings, gilded mouldings and aluminium mouldings to meet your every framing need and budget. We offer standard, reflection control, conservation and acrylic glazing.
All of our matt board and barrier cards are 100% rag cotton, acid-free and museum grade.
All works undertaken are done so with the best preservation of the artwork in mind and as such all processes are reversible and acid-free, unless otherwise discussed.
The Alchemist also offers a ‘health-check’ service to assess the condition of your existing framed artworks. It is a sad fact that not all framers use the highest-grade materials or correct methods in the framing of artworks and in many cases the wrong materials or methods used by a poor framer will damage the artwork over time, if not immediately. The Alchemist can correct any issues with the existing frame, reframe the work or organise restoration of the artwork if necessary.
We offer a fast turn-around. With orders completed within two weeks, subject to stock availability.
