A long-standing Aladdin's Cave of hobbying goodness - with a huge range of painting supplies, models, 40k, glues, and hobbyist materials over two large floors.

Whenever I can, I recommend this outlet to my students of fine art. For its size, the range of stock is incomparable and priced competitively. The A4 portfolio deals here have served me well through my professional life as an art worker. Look no further for any art bits - enjoy!

Went in tonight, because I've been thinking about trying watercolors for a while. Both men were incredibly nice, very funny and I got even more than I was looking for! The kind sir helping me found me exactly what I wanted and recommended other things I could be interested in! Can't wait to pop in next Saturday for the art class!

Very helpful when buying a present when I hadn't got a clue! Recommended some cheaper products for a beginner so not just profiteering. Will return again.

Nice shop. Is well priced and stocks a wide range of goodies. The two gentlemen I talk to when I go in are always helpful when I ask them for advice. I am glad I live so close to this store. They have a wide range of craft goodies, from many types of paint, all art supplies, train set making supplies, glues, everything.

A specialist art and craft supplies shop, with a huge selection. Loads of model kits and modelling materials. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Allan Edwards (via Google) 5 stars

Great art and craft shop. Focuses more on art equipment, eg, paper, pastels, pencils, paintbrushes. While upstairs has hundreds of aortic and similar models to be bought and made. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Deborah Talbot (via Google) 5 stars

I have just retired so I thought I would start a hobby up. I called into Laurence Mathews as I was interested in painting landscapes, which I haven`t done since attending school. The staff were most helpful and very knowledgeable about their products. They even do art classes in an upstairs studio, which I will probably attend.

Very helpful art supply shop. The size and variation of canvas they stock is quite exceptional. Good prices as well.
