The artisans at Framing & Art Centre love a challenge. With 25 years of experience in the field and a workshop updated with efficient framing machinery, they take on any framing project with confidence. Hockey jerseys and ticket stubs find homes in custom shadowboxes, and paintings and photographs retain their brightness with the help of acid-free matting and UV-resistant glazes. For those unsure of what style frame they want, Framing & Art Centre's artisans are happy to offer suggestions and collaborate on the final design.
DNA 11 is the leading producer of DNA portraits, a truly personalized form of art based on each patron's unique genetic makeup. The process begins with you choosing your style, color, or additional options for your custom work of art. Additional options such as a duplicate DNA mini portrait ($99), a high-resolution digital download ($50), or the addition of your signature ($50) cost extra. After checkout, you'll wait a few days for a DNA-collection kit and instructions to arrive at your address so you can provide a small genetic sample (painlessly taken with a sterilized cheek swab included in the conveniently mailed kit). When you ship the DNA sample back in a pre-addressed envelope from the kit, an authentic DNA image will be generated in a genetic lab. After the DNA is captured for a perfect, raw digital image, the sample is destroyed.
Framing for more than 45 years, Koyman's skilled custom framing team wraps flat valuables such as limited edition prints, photos, diplomas, and memorabilia in high-quality frames. Photo protectors can outfit 8'x10' ($60+), 11"x14" ($95+), and 16"x20" ($110+) family portraits in a basic frame, or guard cherished grass clippings behind an upgraded frame with nonglare glass ($77+). For premium frames ($119+), carefully constructed matting weaves around awards and watercolour paintings as it inflates the outer edge to dimensions up to 22"x26". Expert art consultants stand by at the ready to make suggestions on the best ways to reframe existing artwork damaged from continued use as a frisbee.
The Mud Oven gives amateur artisans the chance to design and paint their own ceramic pieces, with an array of mugs ($19–$25), plates ($18–$32), individual-serving-sized bowls ($18–$26), mixing bowls ($28–$62), and more. Begin your ceramics-styling journey by choosing one of The Mud Oven's earthenware offerings, and then sit down to design and paint the piece. If you're at a loss for inspiration, the studio's staff of pottery whisperers is happy to translate the clay-based concoction's unspoken desires into the realms of colour and form. Go-getter businesspersons may wish to express appreciation for an eventual raise by painting a wine goblet for their CEO, while recently returned-from-orbit astronauts can log their dialogues with the stars on the surface of a salad plate. Once guests have designed and painted their pottery, The Mud Oven staff will glaze and fire it in the studio's onsite kiln, allowing patrons to return for their finished pieces in five days. Rush orders can be met for additional costs.
