Artists Canvases world wide shortages
As a result of the Covid 19 Pandemic and a consequent substantial increase in the demand for creative arts products and activities, there is a chronic shortage of stretched canvases.
The great majority of canvases are manufactured overseas and those manufacturers are trying to cope with a huge surge in global demand.
We apologise for our stock restrictions in many of our canvas ranges but assure you of our efforts to bring the stock levels back to normal as soon as possible.

Winsor & Newton Square Artists Canvas Boards.
Originally a sketcher's product these superior quality canvas boards feature canvas laminated onto high quality boards of excellent stability. They are stretched by hand for correct tension with tailored corners and are triple coated with one coat of acid free sizing and two coats of highly pigmented primer. This helps to give the boards a balanced absorbency and tooth which prevents sinking of oil colours and improves adhesion.
The medium grain surface is ideal for all techniques including heavier applications of colour. Artists' Canvas Board is prepared for immediate use and is suitable for use with oil (including water mixable oil), alkyd and acrylic colours.
