Tear mending

We have a wide range of techniques and methods that we employ when treating torn or physically damaged works of art on canvas. With small damages to a canvas these damages can be joined with a suitable adhesive.

In some cases it is possible to repair a tear using a localised and minimal thread by thread joining technique (Heiber Technique).

In severe cases of large ripped and distorted canvases it may be necessary to support the whole canvas by lining. Lining is the process of adding an appropriate canvas to the reverse of the original in order to provide additional support.
