Auckland's Art Shop for Artists
Located in downtown Takapuna Beach on the North Shore, our store has been serving the local art community since the early seventies. We are owned and operated by working, professional artists and have become the place where like minded creatives choose to gather, share and inspire.
We are the only art supply store in the greater Auckland area that has a working artists' studio on premises. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are always happy, willing and able to demonstrate techniques and share tips on the use of various artist materials.
Our focus is to encourage the pursuit of personal artistic expression and to share our expertise and love for the visual arts.

With this 144-page book readers can explore intriguing methods of combining bookbinding with specific crafts such as quilting, jewelry making and polymer clay. It is filled with illustrated step-by-step instructions and photographs that demonstrate how to construct cover pages, create unique bindings and more with a diverse range of media. Each project features two alternate versions with the same binding geared to those with more or less experience. The novice version is for those who have no knowledge of the craft and want shortcuts, but love the look. The expert version is for those who have a great deal of knowledge and proficiency of a certain craft, the master art quilter, for example. For this version, an expert guest artist has created the cover and the author has created the binding.
