Our Fine Art Gallery & Printmaking Studio

Our beautiful fine art gallery,  printmaking studio and Framing workshop is located in the heart of Ironbridge. The attractive industrial brick and wood timber frame building, with a 40ft high ceiling, is the perfect setting.

We are proud to be a lively hub for artists and art lovers alike here at Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing offering a huge array of services, products, and workshops.

With over forty years of experience, at Ironbridge Fine Arts & Framing, we continue to work with a wide range of people. Many artists, schools, individuals, art groups and art societies come to our printmaking studio to learn about the art of printmaking as well as offering Guild Certified Framing and Art Sure approved Giclee Printing. Our work has been carried out across Shropshire, the UK and right across the world.

Our fine art gallery runs on our passion for printmaking. Similarly, we put our passion into raising the awareness, profile, and accessibility of printmaking and fine art into everything we do. Our passion grows daily; as we see the joy that it brings people. We love what we do and enjoy seeing the positive effect and support that we can give to our customers.

As real artists, we know the dedication, passion, and drive that goes into producing artwork and being successful. As a business, we offer a range of services for every requirement that you may have. This ranges from drawing workshops, teaching the art of printmaking in our printmaking studio and being the sole distributor of the Gunning Arts Printing Presses. We carry out giclee printing and scanning, as well as artwork framing to guild-commended standards. Moreover, we also sell incredible artwork within our beautiful fine art gallery!
