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 (a.k.a Wawa) 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.
