Why use an Easel?

Many artists prefer to use an easel because it enables them to work more freely, and to step back and view artwork from a distance. Working in a vertical position reduces the possibility of perspective being skewed, prevents dust gathering on slow-drying media, and the build up of loose pastel, chalk or charcoal sitting on the support.

Why choose Winsor & Newton Shannon Studio Easel?

A robust H-frame model, the Shannon Studio Easel is supplied in kit form for simple self-assembly, and has an adjustable angle, allowing the artist to attain their preferred working position. The lower canvas support can be moved along the mast, to obtain the optimum working height, and incorporates a convenient storage shelf for brushes, pencils and other artist’s tools.

What are the dimensions of Winsor & Newton Shannon Studio Easel?

Extending to a maximum height of 264cm, and weighing 9.3kg, the Shannon Studio Easel can accommodate a canvas or board up to 134cm in height. Folding to 202 x 57 x 17cm, for easy storing, this easel expands to a width of 52cm, and depth of 57cm.

What types of Easel are available?

We stock a variety of easels to ensure the artist’s every requirement is met.

Field or Portable Easels are designed to be taken outdoors, and are the perfect choice for travelling artists or those wanting to plein air paint. This type of easel is also preferable for artists who prefer a level of mobility around their studio. Folding to a lightweight, compact size, portable easels require little storage space.

Available in H-Frame, A-Frame and Single Mast designs, Studio Easels  are ideal for the artist who has a dedicated studio space, where an easel can remain standing indefinitely.

H-Frame easels have a strong base that makes them sturdier than A-Frame easels, and better able to handle large canvases.

A-Frame or Lyre easels have two legs at the front and one at the rear, which pushes forward allowing the easel to be flattened and easily stored.

Single Mast easels are simple and affordable, a great choice for beginning artists, art students, or anyone with limited storage space.

Portable and easy to store, Table Easels are small enough to place on a table top, and perfect for artists who prefer to sit while working, or whose work is on a more modest scale.

It arrived on time and in good order. It's now sitting in the studio waiting for me to use it - that will be soon. Nice and steady.

The easel works as described. I have an issue with the extending height in my room but was aware of it when I ordered the easel. I have solved this by using clamps so I don't need to raise the central strut.

Very strong, stable easel. Only problem is the height of the mast when the bottom ledge is raised - I need a higher ceiling!

Best price that I found at the time. The easel is sturdy to a point and not too cumbersome. I say to a point as the mast does wobble a little and I may put a chock or wedge in there to minimise that.It is tall. If you're planning on painting stood up, you will need high ceilings, or like I plan to do, is chop of the top of the mast and have it on a hinge and lock, so it can fold down when not being used, and can extend for very large canvas.Overall, very pleased.

An amazing price for a solidly made easel. I haven't tried it yet but I really like the size which will allow me to paint large scale pieces.

fantastic easel at a great price! i could do with a taller ceiling though as the mast goes very high. Be great to have a flip attachment for the last foot of heigh on the mast, so you could clip it over.
