Notice Of Closure On 5th May 2018
It is with much sadness that I have to announce the closing of Barbers Picture Framing.
As many of you know I have agreed to grant a lease on the Chertsey Road shop . It will (surprise surprise!) become a restaurant.
My colleague Rob had been planning to buy the business and move it to a new location. However after an exhaustive search, and several false starts , it transpires that there is simply no appropriate alternative venue either for rent or purchase in the Woking area. Rob has since found a very attractive gallery and framing business and is now pursuing that option however it is 80 miles away. I wish him the best of luck with his new venture.
Our final day of trading will be 5th May and in light of that we will be unable to accept framing commissions from April 28th . It is possible that I may resume framing from home at some juncture …. but need to find a suitable “home” first. Please feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone on 07825 278865.
I know many of our loyal customers will be saddened by this announcement …. as I am too. I have been personally running the business for 31 years and we have been trading from our current premises for well over 40 years! Please accept my sincere thanks for all of your support over these years.
If you are an artist and require some very cheap pre used frames please drop in to the shop and see our stock before we close – everything must go!!
Kind Regards,Stuart Herring

Comprehensive & Varied Services

Why Barbers Is Right For You
Put simply, our ambition is to be exceptional; exceptional picture framing and exhibiting exceptional artists.
Listening & Being Creative
Bespoke framing is not undertaken lightly, so getting it right is paramount.
We achieve that by listening, listening to what the client needs and wants, and offering them creative ideas to enhance their artwork and make it shine.
It sounds simple but a lot of framers don’t do it. We do.
A Great Choice
Frames & Mounts
Over 500 Frames
Over 100 Mounts
Gallery Displays & Exhibitions
We also apply the same mindset to our gallery. It’s eclectic, but once again quality underpins it all whether our constantly changing range of artists, or the exhibition stage. Do come and visit us, to chat through some ideas on how you can transform your artwork, or to view our current collection.
New to our Gallery is 12 of the very popular Quentin Blake OBE’s limited edition prints (some signed) including Roald Dahl illustrations, plus some beautiful limited edition prints by Fletcher Sibthorp and Mia Tarney. Our gallery also features work from notable artists such as Woking’s own Sunita Khedeker who began her gallery career at Barbers, Joe Bowen, Ray Campbell and Sue MaCartney Snape.
Sunita Khedeker Exhibition
Barbers is delighted to welcome back the wonderful Sunita Khedeker who began her UK exhibition career at this gallery back in the 1990’s. She will be exhibiting with us from 11th December to 8th January so please drop by and see some of her latest work.
Sunita Khedekar’s work is inspired by an overwhelming vision of divine nature, enhanced by a deep feminine sensitivity and spirituality. A joyous imagination joins forces with an innate spontaneity that energises the canvas and allows the artworks to evoke a unique sense of openness, intellectual transparency and delicacy.
North Surrey Artists exhibition
We are looking forward to North Surrey Artists exhibition at Barbers from 23rd September for 3 weeks.
Please come and join us for the Preview Evening on Tuesday 26th September from 5pm, and enjoy the artwork over a glass of wine.
The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday, see the Exhibitions page for times and further details.
