Now in new premises at BSS House in Cheney Manor, Framework Art and Craft can host workshops, craft demonstrations and exhibitions.
The family run business, set up 20 years ago to make materials affordable to as many people as possible, is still going strong. Paints, brushes and canvas, picture framing supplies and materials for crafts including mosaics, rugs and card making are all offered at discounted prices.
Alan, Eileen and Karen Miller, above, are always on hand to give advice and provide a friendly service to make sure that people get the most out of their materials.
At a time when large and small craft shops across the country are being forced to close, FAC sees customers come from miles away, attracted by their wide range of materials. People make regular trips from all over the south to stock up on supplies, making a day of it by taking in other attractions such as the Designer Outlet.
In October FAC held its first exhibition of work by local artists Karen Miller and Vikki Loeber-Hughes and more are planned. Art demonstrations and workshops in the new year will be published at www.facswindon.co.uk
