August 3rd 2021

Interesting works come in for repair and clean. This one particularly fits with the historic image of Swansea. The city had a fleet of ships, in the 19th century, that brought in copper ore from all quarters of the globe. There was a time when ships queued to enter the docks. We cleaned and repaired all the necessary parts of the frame and canvas.

As we go into August

Some attractive works are coming through that we will be showing you as this month progresses. We also have a ‘window full’ of interesting prints for sale on days when the sun is not shining directly on the glass. Many are historic.

Current Situation……. August 1st 2021

The uncertainties of the Pandemic are still affecting us and consequently our customers.

Mainly, there has been a slow-down in the deliveries of some materials we use. Glass, for example is taking weeks to arrive and most of our mainstream work includes glass.

For public safety we are working to appointments only. That is another factor.

The ‘track and trace’ hit us too and enforced a 10 day closure. Work is still going through but its not as quick as we would wish. You can see some interesting examples from the past few weeks, before the ‘pinged’ episode on neighbouring pages.

To make an appointment, please call 01792 646181 during normal shop hours, which are Tuesday-Friday 09:00 to 14:00 and until 12:00 on Saturday.
