Art & Crafts Supplies
Our Southsea branch is one of the very few fully stocked art shops left not only in Southsea but in Hampshire. We carry leading brands such as Winsor and Newton, Daler Rowney and Derwent. Just a quick phone call to us is all it takes to know if we stock a certain brand or particular product. And we’re always happy to order an item or hold an item for you until you can call in to collect it. We also have lots of auxiliary products like erasers, tapes, sharpeners, glue, spray paint – and a great selection of art products for children too!
Restoration & Conservation Service
We work closely with a very experienced restorer whose expertise in restoring any damage on both artwork and frames is second to none. Just leave your artwork at either of our Galleries, the restorer will then collect it from us and will get in touch with you direct with a report and quotation for the work that is to be carried out. Once the work is done, Garve, the restorer, will arrange to meet you at our Gallery to re-unite you with your now pristine artwork.
Both our Galleries act as drop-off and collection points for camera repairs. Repairs on any type and make of camera or video equipment are undertaken by a specialist with over 30 years experience. There’s also the option to transfer old media like photos, slides, VHC-C tapes, VHS recordings etc. into digital format and put onto CD or DVD. Although we facilitate the service, you will be dealing directly with Chris, who carries out the work.CTS Photography
Greeting Card Printing
Our speciality is giclée printing, but we have a close relationship with a printing company, based in the Midlands. They print greeting cards from digital files, prepared by us. We can offer a greeting card printing service at extremely competitive prices. The cards come to you with envelopes and self-seal cello bags. All we need is a digital image, but if you can’t supply your own, then we can help by scanning your image or re-sizing any digital photographs to the correct sizes.
