What to Bring

Life Drawing & Painting Equipment and Materials

You need bring nothing: easels and drawing boards are provided and materials can be bought at the studio and most people find it easier to do this. I mainly stock Winsor & Newton products.

Materials to buy at the studio

Life Drawing Materials

Sugar paper and newsprint for 5 and 1 minute drawings
Canson paper for longer drawings
Cartridge paper for painting or drawing
Medium willow and extra thick charcoal
White pastel
Putty rubbers
Ink brushes

Life Painting Materials

Oil and acrylic painting paper
Oil paints
Kitchen roll
Palette knives
Disposable palettes
Hog hair brushes
Brush cleaner

Watercolour & Acrylic Painting

You are welcome to work in watercolour or acrylic though I do not stock these paints. If you are planning to use watercolour please bring your paints, brushes and watercolour paper with you.


Either bring a packed lunch to eat at the studio or on the roof garden in good weather. There are local cafés and shops nearby for provisions.
