Just love this gorgeous shop
I love this friendly shop,- it always smells gorgeous with amazing scented candles and room sachets. Great for beautiful, quality cards, gifts, home furnishings, toys and yummy chocolates; great to find vegan and sugar-free varieties too. I will definitely be back for more!

Good set of brushes and beautiful candles.
The art shop is a nice place. I bought several brushes from there. It is important to have a good set of brushes if you want to paint like a professional.
The shop isn't big, but you can find different supplies there.
The candles there are beautiful, but expensive. This is my opinion. I hope I was helpful.

Rudest lady ever
I called for some plaster of Paris & wanted a particular type. The lady got angry & insisted 'all plaster of Paris' goes hard, not understanding that I was after a particular type. She hung up on me while I was giving her the name of the product & was rude throughout the call.
For a supposedly specialist arts shop to be both so rude & ignorant of what you are selling takes a really special kind of person.
It's the only shop near me selling a product that I want but I would refuse to ever shop there following my call.

Helpful and welcoming staff
The Art Shop in Wanstead High Street has the best selection of greetings cards in the area, along with lots of small treats for those last minute gifts (scented candles, chocs etc).

But where they surpass themselves is in the picture framing. We've been coming here for an umber of years to get things framed and they always give good advice on styles, colours etc. Everything always comes back looking splendid. It may be more expensive than an IKEA frame but the staff of The Art Shop know how to make things look that much better.
