    Default Canvas stretching in Melbourne

    I just came back from a trip to Thailand and bought a beautiful painting. I need to have the canvas stretched onto a frame. Has anyone had any experience getting it done? Any recommendations of a place to get it done in Melbourne? Can't wait to hang it on the wall.

    I had one recently done (Perth), cost $55, just to give you a ball-park figure.

    cant remember the name of the place, but the cheapest i've found is on victoria st melbourne, between rmit city and carlton campuses..

    after that, senior art supplies is ok.

    There's a place on Malvern Rd near the corner of Tooronga Rd that does it - not sure about price but they do a fantastic job.

    Was a lot more than I was expecting (~$20)...

    I'll have a look at the place near RMIT. Thanks for the info!

    Art Stretchers in Carlton or Senior Art in Malvern, CBD, Frankston and maybe some other suburbs are worth a shot.
