Established in Brighton 2011 'Thomas Rainsford' has fast become Brightons' leading picture framers. We work closely with our clients to develop unique and innovative design solutions for each piece of artwork whether it is a personal piece for your home or to present the artwork for an interior project, art exhibition or commission work.
There is a wide range of framing options to choose from and each frame can be uniquely customised. Here at Thomas Rainsford we take great pride in our work, framing to the highest standards using museum grade materials where necessary and offering water-white and U.V protective glazing options. We love to tailor our frames creating unique finishes with varying styles using a variety of gesso's, wood dyes, and paints we can come up with an unlimited choice of colour, texture, and finish.
Every element of the frame will be discussed ensuring that your artwork will be safely housed and beautifully presented, fitting seamlessly into the environment where it is to be displayed.
We are always ready for a challenge, if the piece is unusual come and see us at the workshop and we will work with you on finding a bespoke framing solution.

"Let’s stop acting like women who choose to be feminine are somehow colluders, betraying the movement, bamboozled into thinking that they want to be feminine. Let’s stop denying women their own autonomy by telling them that their expressions of femininity are bad and wrong.
Antifemininity is misogynist. What you are saying when you engage in this type of rhetoric is that you think things traditionally associated with women are wrong. Which is misogynist. By telling feminine women that they don’t belong in the feminist movement, you are reinforcing the idea that to be feminine and a woman is wrong, that women who want to be taken seriously need to be more masculine, because most people view gender presentation in binary ways. This rewards the ‘one of the boys’ type rhetoric I encounter all over the place from self-avowed feminists who seem to think that bashing on women is a good way to prove how serious they are when it comes to caring about women and bringing men into the feminist movement.”

Proud Cabaret Brighton. Modelled on a 1920's Speakeasy Club, the venue offers fine dining and entertainment in a beautiful listed building, with a hand painted dome ceiling reminiscent of the illicit glamour of a bygone era.
Volk's Electric Railway is a narrow gauge heritage railway that runs along a length of the seafront of the English seaside resort of Brighton. It was built by Magnus Volk, the first section being completed in August 1883, and is the oldest operating electric railway in the world. Although it was preceded by Werner von Siemens's 1879 demonstration line in Berlin and by the Gross-Lichterfelde Tramway of 1881, neither line is still operational.Operated as a historical seafront tourist attraction, the railway does not usually run during the winter months, and its service is also liable to occasional suspension due to severe weather or maintenance issues.HistoryIn 1883 Magnus Volk opened a short, electric railway running for 1/4mi between Swimming Arch and Chain Pier. Electrical power at 50 V DC was supplied to the small car using the two running rails. In 1884 the line was extended a further 1/2mile beyond the Chain Pier to Paston Place, and regauged to. The electrical supply was increased to 160 V DC and the power plant was installed in the arch built into the cliff face at Paston Place. In 1886 an off-set third rail was added to minimise current leakage.
