Art Materials - Schools, Colleges & Uni's


Artway has a long history as a supplier of art materials for schools, colleges and universities for over 20 years, providing a variety of custom art kits, technical drawing equipment and other creative supplies, often as part of our wholesale art supplies scheme, which provides huge art discounts across our entire range of products.

The only stipulation with our wholesale scheme is to spend a minimum of £100 + VAT to qualify for the 45% wholesale discount, so everyone from large educational institutions to individuals can apply. Sign up here, then, sign in and all the wholesale prices are shown automatically. See below for more details!

We also supply individual students via direct sales on our website and through our pop-up shops at various educational locations throughout the academic year. Every student, whether full or part time, is eligible for our Student Discount, a generous scheme to help make the art materials you need for studying more affordable. Please click here to sign up.

Wholesale Art Materials for Education

In order to purchase bulk art materials at heavily discounted prices from Artway, whether as an institution, art gallery, small retailer or individual, simply contact us directly or fill out our quick and convenient wholesale sign up form. You’ll then get access to the most comprehensive art discounts we offer.

To quickly summarise the benefits of being a wholesale customer, here are the key perks:

  • Everyone qualifies! 
  • £100 + VAT minimum spend
  • 45% discount
  • All discounts calculated automatically - hassle free!

So if you’re an art teacher or art class instructor, a professor of arts or crafts or any kind of employee of a relevant institution, you will qualify for heavy discounts on the great selection of art materials for education that Artway provides.

A huge benefit of our wholesale customer scheme is that you can buy any art supplies you like, in any amount, to reach the minimum of £100 + VAT - we don’t force you to buy unwanted duplicates via bulk-only multipacks. This allows you to precisely cater to your individual needs.

Oh, and did we mention delivery is always free if you’re a wholesale customer in mainland UK? And if you work for an educational institution or a government funded body, and you’re used to paying via PO (purchase order), we can accommodate that too.

We can even deliver the art kits at a time and place of your choosing, for your ultimate convenience.
