All framing is undertaken on-site in our rural open plan workshop in Chelvey and we offer a made to measure service. Come and say hello, discuss your needs or ask us for an estimate.

Hello, I’m Georgina & I co-own The Picture Framers Chelvey & Gallery 370 currently based in Cleeve with my business partner Andy the Framer (no, not handy the framer ... although, he is). I run all aspects of the non glamorous side of the business as well as the more glamorous side of home design trends, networking, social media, marketing, & blogging.
After working in an office for far too long and being a bit fed up of my IT Training career in London, 7 years ago, I was given the opportunity to set up in business.
My Dad has been an amateur Photographer for as long as I can remember and my Sister is an extremely gifted Fine Artist. I’ve always admired them both greatly. I followed my interest in Photography but felt disengaged with my creative side, as I just never thought I had it in me.
When I moved to the South West, I took a City & Guilds in Photography (and passed it!) and later, this was the idea behind the business I currently run but it’s all about the Framing now (and rightly so!).
It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I’ve gone from not knowing a single thing, thinking that I haven’t a creative bone in my body to wanting to shout to anyone that’ll listen about all things framing. I’ve discovered a love for colour, design & service that I didn’t even know was there!
I wanted to combine my love of framing and interior design with communication and technology, hence starting a blog under the name of framing fairy. I like to share my knowledge and thoughts, help with tips or if possible, solve problems.
I firmly believe in service and our fresh approach has always put our customers at the heart of our business.
Whilst the standard of framing & knowledge is key, Andy and I were brought together by our love of interior design and creativity. We try to engage our customers fully in the whole framing process, making it fun, informative & non-intimidating whilst still keeping our service personal and professional.
We are moving in October 2011 to Brockley Lane off the A370 - please visit our website for more information.
