Beautiful paintings, in handcrafted frames Commissions welcome
Framing commissions welcome
Over 250 frame styles to choose from
Polkadot Pictures & Framing offers a bespoke, professional picture framing service in the Wetherby area, for watercolour paintings, prints, photographs, children's drawings, documents, certificates, canvas boards and fabrics. Examples of some commissions can be seen below, and many more are shown on the Framing Examples pages. Polkadot Pictures & Framing also sells framed original art - see Pictures for Sale.
Around 30 ready-framed pictures will be offered for sale at Polkadot Pictures' events in Collingham and craft fairs elsewhere. Also on sale will be a number of pictures which are mounted but unframed. These can either be left with Polkadot Pictures for framing, or you can buy them with just the mount if you prefer.
Pictures for sale include landcapes, seascapes, flowers and wildlife. The pictures are by different artists so there is a wide variety of styles. Prices for original framed art range from under £20 to less than £60.
Polkadot Pictures & Framing visits Collingham Memorial Hall, near Wetherby, twice a month to discuss commissions from customers. Dozens of mount colours and over 250 frame styles are available to choose from. All the framing is done by Lisa - that's me(!), and details of my background and experience can be seen on the About page. I have been doing bespoke framing for customers in the Wetherby area since 2015 and feedback from some of my satisfied customers can be seen on the Testimonials page.

For this painting of Wetherby Golf Club by local artist Carol Peace, the customer chose a pewter frame with a black-bevelled mount.
Please see the Art & Framing Events page for more information about the events which Polkadot Pictures & Framing is attending; or art exhibitions for details about the exhibitions being held by art groups in the Leeds and Wetherby areas.
Sat 18th Apr 2020
9am - 12.30pm
Collingham, nr Wetherby
To enable social distancing, my picture framing events will be held in the spacious Green Room on the ground floor (previously called the New Supper Room) for the foreseeable future.
If possible, please contact me in advance to ask for an appointment time, in order to try and avoid a number of people gathering at the same time.
A one-way system will operate, and if several people are unavoidably in the hall at the same time, there will be plenty of room for each person/couple to sit well away from other people.
There will be a 1m high perspex screen across the counter in order to enable discussions to take place safely. The screen will be wiped after each consultation.
You will be asked to place your item behind the screen and I will be the only person to handle the mount and frame style options.
Chairs will be changed after each customer and wiped with disinfectant. The handle of the entrance door will also be regularly wiped.
A UK-made pump-action hand sanitiser with 70% alcohol content will be available. Customers are also welcome to use the disabled toilet in the entrance porch to wash their hands on leaving.
Thank you for your support, and let's all stay safe!
