While onsite as mount makers for Ely Museum we worked producing tiny acrylic and metal mounts for pieces of Anglo Saxon hoards, to a 5m installation of hanging spades. Having our own large workshop means we can test and mock up all manner of different art installations. See the mock up process in our workshop and photos onsite below.
