Welcome to ARCHdeptford // fine art supplies in South East London

ABOUT US : We are an independent fine art supplies shop, based in a railway arch in the heart of Deptford, South East London. We opened in 2009 and our aim is to supply a carefully selected range of high quality products at the best prices we can to artists across the UK. In addition to items listed, we can supply most leading brand products and offer discounts on bulk orders.

We are currently undergoing a number of changes here at ARCH including re-building this website. More pages will be added every week and an online shopping cart added soon. Please bear with us while we work away on this.

ARCH is owned and run by artist Paul Marks who is always happy to discuss technical issues on painting and give advice on materials and methods.

This year, we have a permanent 20% off Michael Harding Oils, Spectrum Oils and Golden Acrylics. For orders over 300 we are offering an extra 5% and an extra 10% off for orders over 500.


We provide a service for making professional grade canvases using Russell & Chapple's stretcher bars made from kiln dried, engineered timber, laminated to prevent warping and twisting. These bars are in our opinion the highest quality available. Most customers opt for a 12oz cotton duck, hand primed with acrylic gesso. Canvases can also be stretched using any of Russell & Chapple's extensive range of unprimed or primed cottons, linens and polyester.

In addition, we provide a service for the re-stretching of oil and acrylic paintings, using the same high quality Russell & Chapple stretcher bars.
