Arts & Crafts

Based in North East England, The Expanded Metal Company is a supplier of mesh for crafts, arts and sculpture.

Using the myriad apertures and patterns of metal mesh, artists and sculptors can manipulate natural light or artificial lighting effects, and our expanded metal can be supplied in a range of textures, finishes and colours.

Expanded metal can be used to create attractive jewellery, frames, screens, decorative sheeting, holders, and home or garden decorations.

Our mesh is flexible and versatile, and is used in home studios, arts schools, film and TV projects, colleges and the retail sector.

Modelling wire mesh

Crafters and artists can use our modelling wire mesh to create wire mesh sculptures, wire mesh art and attractive mesh decorations.

Meshes from our aluminium mesh range can be used as a substrate in the creation of sculptures, and our foil meshes can be compressed or folded to create new shapes.

In addition, lightweight expanded metal products, including aluminium foil mesh, are commonly used in costume design and our fine meshes can be used to make masks or costumes.

As well as designing, manufacturing and supplying mesh for crafts and art works, we also provide finishing services such as anodising and powder coating. By using these processes, a spectacular range of colours and textures can aid artistic expression through the creation of stunning visual effects.

You can purchase a wide range of mesh materials on our website, including stainless steel, pre-galvanised steel and aluminium meshes, plus cost effective alternatives to small wire mesh, such as micromesh and our fine mesh products.

However, if you can’t find the pattern or material you are looking for, we can work with you to create a bespoke mesh for your art or craft project. We have an established track record of designing new meshes for specific projects and have extensive tooling capabilities to support this. Contact us to find out more.
