You are looking at a top quality easel which has been designed by artists for artists.
Have you been on the hunt for the perfect art easel? One that gives you many possibilities, but is also a reasonable price? This workshop easel fits the bill.
It is a classic A-frame easel. In the art world the style is referred to in this way as it looks like an uppercase letter A.
What is great about the A-frame easel design is that it takes up less room than other easel styles. It is not as bulky and can be more easily used in small spaces.
It also conveniently folds flat for storage behind a cupboard or under a bed when not in use. This is also essential if your easel needs to be transported around.
The workshop easel by Van Gogh’s Ear Woodshed is constructed from quality solid Beechwood. It is held together with sturdy and attractive gold metal fittings – bolts, nuts and screws.
Customising the easel to suit your needs or make changes when changing from one project to the next is no problem. You can easily adjust the height that your artwork sits. The front lip, or canvas holding board moves up and down on a metal ratchet. You have the option of 11 different height positions to choose from.
Additionally, the back leg of the easel can be adjusted in and out, to achieve the perfect viewing or working angle. There is a wing nut that can be tighten to keep the exact angle securely in place. You can also set the easel up outdoors. Even on slightly uneven ground it will hold in place.
Whatever your medium, this easel will do its job and make your process of creation easier and more comfortable. Work on a large canvas or board, in acrylics or oils.
Sketchers will find this easel useful too. Especially for those large scale pieces. Clip your paper to a large board and place it on the easel. You can then comfortably work with your charcoals or pastels from a clear straight-on view of your full piece.
For quick sketches and practice this easel is also a great size for holding large bulky news sheets.
Yet, the easel is not at all cumbersome and heavy. It can easily be picked up and moved around the studio, as required.
Beyond the artist’s studio an A-frame easel has many uses. It is very popular for holding signage and displays at exhibitions. Artwork, photographs or framed memorabilia can be easily and prominently displayed at events, in galleries or at weddings.
If you need to put a huge piece on display, this easel can do it. It is a big sturdy easel and it will accommodate very large artwork.
You can place a piece which is up to 2 metres (200cm) high on the easel. You just need to slide the head off the top of the easel. If you wish to have the top of your artwork secured, then the maximum height the easel will take is 1.3 metres (130cm).
