Studio Arts

Open : Mon – Sat 9 – 5

website : http://www.studioartshop.com facebook : https://www.facebook.com/StudioArtsCraftsGraphics

Studio Arts was formed by Ann Dodgson in 1972, for over 45 years it has served the art and craft community in Lancaster. Often described as an Aladdins cave it is packed with art, craft, graphic and modelling materials. Dave George has been the manager for the last 8 years and is constantly looking to expand the range wherever possible. Recently they have started to incorporate more modelling supplies such as tabletop wargaming from Games Workshop and traditional kits from Revell and Airfix. There is very little that they either do not have or cannot easily source for the creatively minded. The floor, walls and even ceiling is packed with paints, pens, pencils, papers, stickers, kits and all manner of things too numerous to mention.


Open : 10 – 5 Wednesday to Saturday Website : http://www.atticusbooks.co.uk

Atticus started in Liverpool way back in the 1970s and has never run as a conventional bookshop. We have a page about the history of the shop on the website. We support Tasikoki Animal Rescue Centre in Indonesia, run the Atticus One Minute Monologue Competition and have a packed programme of events over music festival weekends.
