About Islington

Islington is our London Flagship store, the UK’s largest art supply store on three floors. Find us on the East Side of London, just a five-minute walk from Angel tube station.

We have an entire floor dedicated to painting and drawing, another for paper and canvas and our lower ground floor full of kid’s creative supplies and a large range of craft, printmaking and modelling materials.

We provide the world’s best art brands at the most affordable prices (ask about our Price Guarantee), and our staff are all artists so that we can provide friendly, expert advice on all your creative projects.


Voted one of Time Out’s 100 Best London Shops

Our flagship store is celebrating its tenth year and we’ve recently transformed the look of the store. In addition to bringing in a wide selection of new products, we have also created a range of interactive spaces in store to make every visit with us a unique experience.


The Try Me Table

Our demonstration table lets you try out our large range of products, learn tips and techniques and attend workshops led by artists and our suppliers. We also have daily demonstrations by our staff artists, find out more here.


The Social Space

A community hub where you can sit and read our inspiring collection of magazines and books, see what’s going on in the art world on our events board, hold meetings or use our reading table to put together your portfolio.
