Art & Craft Materials

CLEARANCE SALE - 3 FOR 2 on Winsor & Newton Paint, Brushes and Pads

Mix and Match across ranges. No further discount. 3 FOR 2 available on all individual paints, pads and brushes. Sets are excluded from 3 FOR 2 offer.

We would like to thank you for your support over the past 38 years and inform you that we will no longer be stockists for Winsor & Newton or Daler Rowney.  We are therefore reducing prices on our Winsor & Newton and Daler Rowney artists materials.  

Individual paints, brushes, mediums and pads are now 3 for the price of 2.  This includes Cotman and Artists Watercolour tubes and pans, Oil and Acrylic paints, Gouache and Ink ranges.  

Further reductions on other items including canvases, easels and portfolios.
We will still be open for all your framing requirements, from cutting a mount or new piece of glass to framing your artwork from start to finish.
