We are planning to re-open on a limited basis from Tuesday 16th June, subject to government advice. All framing consultations and collections will be by appointment so that we can manage the flow of people in the building and prevent customers waiting during busy periods. Please visit our Appointments page for details on how to book. Our opening hours will be back to normal, Tuesday – Sunday 10am – 4.30pm.
Customers will be free to visit the gallery and shop without an appointment, just with a limit on the number of people in the gallery at any one time whilst the COVID-19 restrictions are still in place.
We have been incredibly busy over recent weeks re-designing the framing design area and till point to enable adequate social distancing and make things easier and safer for our customers and staff. Increased hygiene procedures will be in place and our new design bench is now a wipeable surface, allowing us to clean it down between customers.
Our frequently asked questions page should answer any queries you may have about how things have changed and what measures we are putting in place to keep everyone as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. If there is anything that we have not covered that you would like to ask about, please do get in touch, we will be happy to help.
As well as re-configuring the framing design area and shop, we have taken the opportunity of enforced closure to re-decorate the West Barn Gallery. We will need a little more time to re-hang and get this ready for visitors so are planning to re-open this on Saturday 4th July. From this date, we are offering some out of hours viewings for people who may wish to visit the gallery privately in small groups. please go to the Appointments page for more information.
In line with government direction we are now CLOSED to the public until further notice due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Heather will be working on customer framing orders in isolation and contact-free deliveries of completed work will be arranged wherever possible.
We will continue to update the range of gallery items available for purchase through this website and will fulfil these orders in the usual way for as long as we can.
Stay safe everyone and we look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery when it is safe to do so.
other businesses we are taking the responsible precaution of closing the public
gallery for the time being due to the Covid-19 outbreak. We will remain open as normal until 4.30pm on
Saturday 21st March.
We plan to maintain service to our customers by moving temporarily to a ‘by appointment’ system for framing consultations and collections. Please call us to discuss your requirements and make appointments. We will regularly review this and let you know of any changes that need to be made to these arrangements.
Our hygiene procedures of hand sanitiser at the door and regular disinfection of door handles, surfaces, card machine, till point etc that we put in place this week will remain in place. We would ask though, that you only make an appointment to see us if you and your family are symptom free.
We will be working behind the scenes on our framing orders and completed work can be collected by appointment, contact-free at the side of the building or delivered locally. We will contact all clients directly to make whatever arrangements are most suitable at the time.
