Canvas Supports

Like so many of our lines, we also carry the full gamut of canvases and supports.

If you like to stretch your own canvas, we offer Art Spectrum stretcher bars and sell medium weight, primed, Fredrix and Indian Cotton canvas by the yard. We can also provide you with linen. If you don't see what you want, we will source to suit your requirements.

We also stock untempered hardboard (i.e. Masonite) and can make up Custom box-framed hardboard, in almost any size.

Our in-store prestretched primed canvas range include: Museum, Winsor & Newton, Fredrix Panels and Pads, and our Takapuna stretched canvas line made in New Zealand with imported American fine tooth canvas and New Zealand kiln dried pine. Inquire about our bulk canvas rates.
