The above materials are available for convenience. They are not a cost effective option and it is therefore recommended that materials are brought prior to attending the studio. Intaglio via London Bridge is a recommended source.

As a rule of thumb bring your own materials - we do not always have everything and there are no art supply shops in the area.
