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 Reeves Art & Craft Workstation?

Offering the artist five angles of tilting position, and an A2 size drawing board, the Reeves Art & Craft Workstation provides versatility for the artist who prefers to be seated, when working on larger scale pieces of art.

What are the dimensions of Reeves Art & Craft Workstation?

Weighing 3.56kg, with board dimensions of 49.5 x 75 cm, the Reeves Art & Craft Workstation can accommodate a canvas or board up to A2 proportions (42 x 59.4 cm). This model folds to a convenient size of 75 x 50 x 7 cm, for easy storage and transportation.

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.

Who are Reeves?

Established in 1766 by William Reeves, to manufacture and sell his own paints, the business flourished quickly, enabling William to take into partnership his older brother, Thomas. A family orientated business, more members continued to join the company, helping to give Reeves the quality reputation it maintains today. However, it was the development and successful marketing of their Moist Watercolour Paint-Cake in 1781, which placed Reeves at the forefront of manufacturing artists’ materials. 

Expansion into foreign markets grew, thanks to military connections and the shipment of supplies to officers stationed in India. This was followed by diversification into affordable art materials for schools and beginners, a line which thrived upon the introduction of the Education Act in 1870.

Today, Reeves continues to manufacture a range of innovative products for artists, crafters and children.

Nice and lightweight with good choice of angle settings. The surface is beech veneer so not sure how durable it will be long term.
