Art Van Go Creating with Colour


After over 34 years ART VAN GO is now heading towards retirement.   Click HERE to find out about winding down SALES DAYS, or read on to find out all about us! 


in a nutshell

Art Van Go started life in 1989 with a van, filled with art materials, travelling around the country 'taking the art shop to the artist'!   The van then evolved into the 'The Studios' shop, which in turn gave birth to the website & online shop!

The Studios shop stocks everything from oil paints to printing materials, but specialises particularly in textile and mixed-media art with the emphasis on the 'hard to find' and the unusual.
Take the virtual tour...

Contact Us! There's so much more in the shop than we can put on the website so if there's something in particular that you need but can't find in our online shop, or if you need advice, call us or email us!
We love to hear from our customers!

EU & NI Sales

Due to Brexit and the continuing confusion surrounding sending out goods we regret we have suspended sales to the EU and Northern Ireland.   Please see HERE for more details.

A little note about how we package our goods...

 As a company that cares about our impact on the environment, and in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, we often send out our goods in recycled packaging. So please don't be surprised if your goods are wrapped in a cat food box or teabag box. We will always use clean, dry recycled packaging to safely send your goods to you, and kindly ask if you can recycle as much as you can of what we send out!

Going, Going . . .

Our 'retirement' plans for 2020 were put on hold by Covid 19 and our doors have been closed since the beginning of the pandemic.

As the pandemic situation eased we began our wind-down process with the doors to the bricks & mortar shop open for SALES EVENT DAYS

We now have a
category on the website as well as reduced prices all over the online shop.  Further details will be announced by email
