About Cowling & Wilcox Easels

Cowling & Wilcox Ltd. began selling art supplies in London in 1960 and has been going strong ever since, offering high-quality art products and materials for nearly 60 years. To this day, we maintain our original concept of providing specialist fine and graphic art materials at exceptional prices, and we’re devoted to upholding this mission statement as we expand and evolve into the future.

With our incredible range of artist easels we’re offering you a wide selection to choose from, for use at home in your studio or for on the go. All of our easels are named after streets in and around London’s Soho.

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.

What a great easel. Affordable, versatile and a good piece of furniture too! Not too hard to assemble
The easel is overall impressive in size. However, I find it hard to use it as it is hard to control the height of the painting. The lever works ok but something in the design of it make it hard to lift the tray and shelf up and down while the painting on the easel. I also tried to lift it with a smaller size painting but that didn’t make a big difference. Stay away if you work on big scale painting.
solidly made, well designed- very impressed
Had been looking for a H frame easel with castors for a bit when this one came up on an internet search. The easel when put together is very good quality, very solid and easy to move about . The intructions are clear and they even send you 2 screw drivers as well. Would strongly recommend this easel especially at the fantastic price .
Really good quality and robust timber, very well made and went together like a dream ~ not too heavily made. Two screw drivers, Philips and flat head are supplied, which were even magnetized to make picking up and placing the screws very easy. Clear instructions with parts alpha numerically itemized so you can't go wrong, nice and simple to put together. The easel looks really good and is easy to manoeuvre with the locking casters. Great product, I would strongly recommend this to anyone interested in painting.
Excellent product. Well designed and produced. Not the easiest to follow construction details but we got there and it is a very sturdy easel and the castors really add to its usefulness for me. Only problem is the height of the upper clamp, my ceilings are not high enough so we may have to modify that part. Otherwise very good product and I can understand why it is a top seller.
Highly recommend , Rolls Royce iof easels
This is the best easel ever, Rey similar to the Sky Arts easels on Portrait and landscape artist of the year.
Easy to assemble, easy to use, easy to move, sturdy
Very good
Good quality, but awful instructions in how to assemble.

My husband called it the rolls Royce of easel out of all the ones I have ordered before I can't wait to use it it's gorgeous simple to put together, glides great on wheels, also has wheel locks, easy to use. Brilliant. xx
Good quality easel - not the best assembly instructions, but got there in the end!
excellent product, very good value can recomend
This easel is a brilliant piece of kit. It is well made out of quality beech. Assembly was OK you just need to think each stage through and then no problems. It represents outstanding value for money
Good product delivered promptly and carefully. Assembly instructions could be clearer!
Assembly took a while as the instructions weren’t always clear but the easel was sturdy and well made. And I’m very pleased with it .
Quality far exceeded my expectations - really excellent.
High quality materials with two lovely screw drivers. Instruction sheet had miniscule writing that even my new reading glasses had difficulty coping with. Could you make the print bigger, I struggled to build it, a dvd would have been very useful as at one point I found I had the long side pieces the wrong way round.
Fantastic quality and exactly what I wanted. Easy assembly.
A sturdy, easy to assemble easel. Looks like it is well made but time will tell. So far I am very pleased with this gift from my husband .
