We are Oaksmith Studio

Oaksmith Studio is an established picture framing workshop with a strong bias towards conservation, presentation and experimentation. We love art and craft, contrast the handmade with the machine-made and look for current trends within a trade rich in tradition.

It is owned and run by Mauro Saccardo who studied fine art at the renowned Accademia di Belle Arti Venice (Academy of Arts Venice), Italy and came to London first in 1999 when he embarked on a university exchange to study at Middlesex University. He quickly fell for the city’s creative vibrancy and made London his permanent base in 2001. He soon started working as a picture framer at Islington’s  Frame Factory whilst pursuing his own interests in installation art and interior design. He left the Frame Factory after more than six years in order to train as an Interior Designer at London’s renowned KLC where he won the “Student of the Year” award upon graduation. As director of MAUZ/ Interiors, Mauro has created, designed and arranged award winning interiors in London’s Bloomsbury area, Hertfordshire and his native Venice.

Oaksmith Studio prides itself on creating beautiful frames that will preserve and present each artwork in the best way possible. We are focused on providing a great experience for our customers and through spending time with you to understand your needs we can draw upon our long standing experience in art and framing to provide the optimal result. During our 10 years of framing experience we have framed everything from old family photographs to wedding dresses, Chinese paper kites to Peter Blakes.
