The Art Shop

Unleash your creative side

Take the hassle out of buying equipment and materials with our on-campus Art Shop.

Stocked with an extensive range of goods, The Art Shop offers a wide range of professional-standard creative materials from quality suppliers such as Daler Rowney, Intaglio, R.K. Burt, Seawhite, Windsor Newton, Faber Castell, and many more.

As well as an impressive catalogue of suppliers, the selection in store is second to none, including materials for crafts, drawing and painting, fashion and textiles, general art supplies, haberdashery, media suppliers, paper, card, and mounting materials, photographic supplies, portfolios, sketchbooks, stationery, sundries, wood, metals, plastics, electronic goods such as USB drives and headphones, and even health and safety supplies.

Whether you're a student, a professional maker or an aspiring amateur, The Art Shop has something for you. Unlike other art shops, our staff are all passionate creative specialists whose insight means they can offer you bespoke advice, guidance, and help with finding the products for you.

Conveniently located just through the School of Creative Arts’ Gallery, customers can immerse themselves in the rich creative culture and enjoy exhibitions and perhaps a cup of coffee in the cafe when they visit.
