  • Hello painters!

    does anyone know where canvas boards can be purchased in bulk rather than having to go to hobbycraft or Smiths and buy one at a time? I've been looking on the internet with no luck as yet!

    Thank you!

            Also, it's worth trying the cheap bookshops (book world, County bookshops, etc) - they often have very good deals on art supplies, including canvases.

                Ah, I was just going to suggest The Works, they have canvases every now and again and their art supplies are good too...I got my brother some lovely Japanese brushes, inks, dishes and case. What a poo that it's closed by you!

                  Every so often Lidl and Aldi have them in as specials. It might be worth keeping an eye on their web sites if you are within reach of any of the shops.

                      Works

                      Wow, i did not know the works had gone completely, thats a shame cos they were quite reasonably priced (maybe thats why they closed!)

                      Thanks for all your help guys, you're being really helpful!

                          Oh, Range are great!

                          I'm surprised that The Works are gone - I went into the one in Norwich just two weeks ago...

                            Range

                            Hi,

                            I've never heard of range, what kind of shop is it? I can look it up on the internet!

                            thanks

                              If you look up`The range. They sell all sorts, not only arts and craft supplies they sell home furnishings (fabric, mirrors, paintings, paint, all kitchen & bathroom items) garden furniture and accessories. Pretty much everything! lol! Think a cross between B & Q and the works type of shop

                              Oh an another place you can try if your anywhere near devon is trago mills.
