Artwork Stretching for Originals and Prints

The stretching of Original Artworks and Prints for the individual, gallery, or printing house is a core capability of Winsen’s Canvases. Artworks are measured with accuracy and the stretcher frame made accordingly. Specific techniques are used to carefully stretch the artwork or print.​

Custom Framing – mouldings and finishes

Custom framing with gold or silver leafing techniques, combined with specific washes can enhance an artwork, adding value and aesthetic beauty. The moulding range is continually expanding, as is the refinement of methods to achieve different finishes, ranging from highly distressed to clean and modern.

What makes our canvases unique

From the beginning, Winsen’s Canvases aimed to produce a canvas stretched on a support structure distinct in quality. To this end it sourced quality timber – light, beautiful and knot-free; Obeche is ideal for the construction of stable expansion frames and mouldings. MDF or Supawood can also be used as a support on smaller sizes, providing a panel that is sturdy and compact, allowing the artist to work against a firm surface. A bracing frame can be added to a board panel, providing additional strength and depth. More recently is the development of aluminium stretcher frames, finding application in unique environments or large sized canvases.
