FREE COLLECTION & DELIVERY SERVICE
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.
Artist : Carol Peace
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!

For the protection of my customers, myself and all those whom we come into contact with, stringent precautions in connection with Covid-19 will be taken as outlined below.
NEW DOOR-TO-DOOR PICTURE FRAMING SERVICE
As from 15th June, I will be offering a door-to-door picture framing service to customers in the Wetherby and North Leeds areas (see below). I am currently updating my web site with all the details, including the Covid-19 precautions I am putting in place, and the new web site will be launched on 13th June. If you would like to be kept informed, please feel free to contact me.
I am looking forward to getting back to framing pictures and meeting customers old & new!
Polkadot Pictures & Framing offers a bespoke, professional picture framing service in the Wetherby and Leeds 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.
HOW IT WORKS
Bardsey, Boston Spa, Collingham, East Keswick, Harewood, Linton, Sicklinghall, Wetherby
Alwoodley, Moortown, Scarcroft, Shadwell, Thorner
A typical price for a picture measuring around 50 x 40cm (20" x 16") is £60-£70, depending on the frame style. The minimum charge is £45, which covers frame, mount, glass, undermount, backboard, sundries and labour. A fixed quote will be given to you and there is no obligation if you decide not to go ahead.
Polkadot Pictures & Framing specialises in framing small to medium sized pictures. The maximum finished length including the mount and frame would be 100cm/39" - just a bit bigger than a standard bath mat to give you a quick idea of the size!
IF YOU'D LIKE TO GO AHEAD ...
Simply send the contact form with your details and I'll give you a call to discuss when it would be convenient to collect your picture for framing. I'll look forward to seeing you!
Testimonials for recommendations from some of my satisfied customers
Simply contact me in the first instance via the contact form, and I will then get in touch to discuss your picture and arrange a convenient time for me to visit you. I will bring samples of frame styles and mount colours with me, and I will give you a quote for framing your picture with your selected frame style and mount combination. There is no obligation to proceed if you wish not to do so, otherwise your picture will normally be framed and delivered back to you around 3 weeks later. For the Covid-19 precautions I am taking, please see the section at the bottom of this page.
If you would prefer to meet outdoors in the garden now that summer is approaching, that is absolutely fine! Also if you would rather not have visitors in your house due to Covid-19 precautions, you are welcome to select a frame style from the options featured on this web site (see links below) and I can simply collect your picture for framing without entering your house.
FREE COLLECTION & DELIVERY SERVICE
in accordance with Covid-19 guidelines
From 5 November, national restrictions mean that I will be able to deliver work that is already in hand, but I will be unable to collect new work. The restrictions are due to end on 2 December, and I will look forward to resuming picture framing after that date. Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
Although the spectre of Covid-19 has reduced, I am still mindful of taking sensible precautions to protect my customers as well as myself. I have had a double dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and before visiting a customer, I use an oximeter, which is recommended by some doctors as an early test for Covid-19. I also use the NHS contact tracing app. In addition, I am happy to wear a mask whilst in your house, and where possible, maintain social distance. By taking all these precautions, I am as confident as I can be that my customers will be protected from the risk of Covid-19. Lisa
With effect from 5th January 2021, my collection and delivery service is regretfully suspended due to the national lockdown. It will be resumed as soon as non-essential businesses are allowed to re-start trading. If you would like me to let you know when I resume the collection and delivery service, please do contact me. I'll look forward to seeing you - hopefully before too long!
I am pleased to announce that my collection and delivery service will be resuming on Monday 12 April. If you would like to book an appointment, please do contact me. I'm looking forward to seeing you, and to getting back to framing pictures!
