Christmas at Curtisward

Christmas stocking full of arty gifts

Christmas is coming! At Curtisward, we can help you be ready with fantastic Christmas craft projects and the perfect artistic gifts for painters, printmakers, illustrators, designers and crafters. This guide will help you find gift sets of paint, pencils, pastels, paper and brushes, offer you ideas for creating your own Christmas cards and decorations and keep you posted with Delivery Info to ensure all your goodies get to you for Christmas. 

Ensure you get your parcels in good time!

The very last posting date to make sure all your goodies arrive before Christmas is 21st December. This is on orders placed before 2pm with the Express Delivery option selected.

With our standard First Class service, Royal Mail advise that the last posting day is 20th December. Always best to get in early though just in case something like the weather taking a turn for the worst puts a spanner in the works!

Please note that our offices will closed from 21st December for the Christmas and New Year period. Full details can be found at the bottom of this page or on our Delivery Information page.

Impress with a gift of wonderful colour! Amazing acrylics, wonderful watercolours and opulent oil colours presented in lovely gift sets that will thrill and delight every Artist!

Whether you are buying for a Designer, Illustrator, Calligrapher or someone who simply loves colouring in, we have the perfect set of pens for them from wooden box sets of professional brush pens and gorgeous gift sets of Calligraphy nibs and inks to classic felt tips.

Brushes always make a great gift. They are practical as well as beautiful and something an artist will always appreciate! We have a great choice of beautiful Brush Sets for Watercolour, Acrylic Painting or Oil Painting in stylish brush cases, smart wallets and impressive presentation boxes.

Give a truly memorable gift. A sketchbook or journal is at the heart of the Artist's creative process and, with every sketch or observation being an expression of themselves, they will treasure the book as well as be reminded of the loved one who gave it to them.

Pastels and Pencils are always popular media options as they can be used to sketch, make studies, preparatory drawings or execute finished tonal and full colour Artwork that suits numerous styles and techniques. And there is simply nothing more stunning than rows of high quality pencils! Within our extensive range, Curtisward offers super Sennelier Oil and Soft Pastels, fabulous Faber Castell Pastel, Oil-based and Water Soluble Pencils and terrific Cretacolor Sketching Sets.
