Outside New Zealand's three largest cities, Ochre Art Supplies is the
largest specialist retailer of fine art materials for the professional,
student, teacher, hobbyist, educational and other institutions.
We work with all New Zealand's major arts suppliers. You'll find all the
best recognised, tried-and tested brands at Ochre.
Specialist items too, now harder to find, are often among the
surprises you can find on our shelves.
Think Ochre and think local in your search for those hard-to-source
items; sometimes what you want is right here in New Zealand, and
can be in your hands more quickly and inexpensively than many
internet purchases. Plus, we provide friendly product advice and
technical information that can be hard to find. All our staff have many
years' experience in finding artistic solutions.
We stretch canvases to order, and we also sell stretcher bars, canvas
and linen by the roll or by the metre (including watercolour canvas).
Conveniently, there is also a professional picture framer next door.
We carry an extensive range of oil, acrylic and watercolour paints and
mediums, pastels, pencils, charcoal, art pens, canvases, brushes, inks,
calligraphy supplies, pads, sketch diaries, high-quality fine art papers,
foam boards, craft and construction card, easels, clays, books, art
accessories, specialist products and gifts. Our products span children's,
student, hobbyist and professional ranges at prices that generally
match or better those of larger retailers.
Locally owned and serving the lower central North Island since 2007,
we pride ourselves on our quest for quality and our product
knowledge. We source reputable, recognised brands: Winsor &
Newton, Old Holland, Caran D’Ache, Sennelier, Faber Castell, Daler
Rowney, Canson, Rotring, Staedtler, Pebeo, Conte, Escoda, Fabriano,
Jo Sonja, Ko-hi-noor, Fredrix, Helmar, Speedball, Art Prism, Art
Spectrum, JasArt, Derivan, Matisse, Raphael, Bockingford, & more.
We accept orders by phone, email and via this site, and can mail to
anywhere in the country and overseas.
This website is still under development. Thanks for your patience;
that's about 9000 items!
Please contact us with any enquiries whatsoever. If we don’t have
what you need, we will try and source it for you.
