Best place to buy Art Supplies in Zurich or surrounding area ??

Hi

I'm an artist and looking for the best selection of art supplies in Zurich or surrounding cantons. More specifically I'm looking for a place that has large scale round shaped canvas's. I desperately need this so willing to drive around to find it. The couple art stores I went to in Zurich ( art ware house and Farben lachenmeier) didnt have what I was looking for.

Thxxx!

Unfortunately not in Zürich. But

https://www.boesner.ch/shop

is for professionals in Switzerland. Online or the physical shop. Easier to get there by car.

I'll try Boesner tomorrow. The other ones on the list are more catered to crafts then art. Would love a place that specializes in canvases of a variety of shapes and sizes...

Hi,

Have you tried Lachenmeier Farben on Josefstrasse?
Tram linien 4, 13, 17; tram stop Museum für Gestaltung. Walkable form Limmatplatz or Zürich HB.

I don't know if they have canvas but they have a good selection of paints, colours and papers.

Re: Best place to buy Art Supplies in Zurich or surrounding area ??

I visit Zumstein regularly and i can confirm that I have never seen a round sterched canvas there (i will check again). I visit Kreativ Point in Konstanz regularly for art supplies and I know that they have 1 section devoted to canvas. I don't use canvas so I had no reason to pay much attention, but may be you want to check with them.

Zumstein sell round framed canvas up to 60cm diameter. Online at least.

Not sure whether that is too small for the OP as he didn't state what size he actually wanted.

Thanks! I'm actually looking minimum 90cm or more ! If anyone knows of a site or shop that might have a large selection I'd really appreciate it!

I dropped by Zumstein. They dont sell the 60 cms one in shop. You have to specially order the 60 cm ones, minimum order 2, price per canvas CHF 107. They cannot do anything more than 60 cm anyway. So you can save yourself the trouble of visitng Zumstein.

Boesner does made to measure canvas.

https://www.boesner.ch/shop

If you need help at the shop, let me know. Will be happy to help you out. Motorway towards Bern, Exit Aarau West. Tomtom will take you there.
Train is possible but taking the stuff home would be tricky.

Re: Best place to buy Art Supplies in Zurich or surrounding area ??

I usually find my art supplies from Zumstein:

https://www.zumstein.ch/

You can order online.

I've bought canvas in the local paint shop, in front of the train station in Stäfa. Great prices.

https://www.farbhof-kuenstlerartikel-staefa.ch/

Last canvas I bought was 1.7 x 1.1, so no size trouble.
