01 Sep Exciting new GreatArt store in London’s Shoreditch!
Anyone who knows me knows that I would rather shop for and look at art materials, than pretty much anything else….so yesterday it was really exciting to be able to visit the new Great Art store in Shoreditch. I’ve seen their sister stores in France, but this is a first for the UK, and it’s huge! Knowing the vast range of GreatArt products, I was keen to see how much product they would be able to display, and was blown away by the depth and breadth on offer; from entry level materials to get everyone started, through to a fantastic range of professional quality materials across a huge range….
There’s a whole aisle from front to back of the store just for painting media, and there are also extensive selections of pastels, oil pastels, print-making kit , sculpture materials and tools including stone, book-binding materials and equipment, marker pens and inks, sketchbooks and papers, drawing media and art storage too.
It’s great to see hard to find things like very large format papers and canvases, and full ranges of pigments, as in the pictures above and below:-
As well as ready made canvases there are canvas rolls, frames and stretchers to make your own, and an amazing variety of mount and framing options.
There’s even free tea and coffee and a nice chill out area, which will also be used for workshops and demonstrations-friendly and helpful staff complete the picture, and make GreatArt in Shoreditch a real must visit for anyone serious about their art materials!
