Our range of support structures for Artist Canvas Stretching
Wooden Stretcher Frames
Stretcher Frame support structures for artists canvas stretching are manufactured from Obeche wood (a.k.a wawa) on 50mm wide profile stretchers. Obeche is the preferred choice of wood in the construction of Winsen’s Canvases Stretcher Frames.
Canvas Boards are compiled of Cotton duck Canvas either pasted or back-stapled onto a masonite or supawood board base. The use of canvas boards is a matter of artistic preference. There is a cost advantage and some artist’s have found preference in using a support structure that has no give under applied brush strokes.
Aluminium Stretcher Frame support structures
Stretchers manufactured from Aluminium alloy has found favour with artists wanting an extremely robust and resilient frame. Alluminium stretcher frames allow for very large canvas stretching – they are light weight, yet a very strong frame structure for canvas stretching.
