The Artpothecary is an independent Brighton based shop that sells creative materials to artists and makers. We strive to make the creative experience easier by providing a set of services that combine the traditional with the innovative and, as practising artists, we understand process, materials and the need for a friendly chat when you're in search of ideas or advice.

We also understand that making art can be expensive. That is why we try and pass the discount onto you. Our prices are affordable, competative and we can be easily swayed into knocking off a quid or two if you ask really nicely. We are also happy to buy in and break down bulk items and give you as little as you need for that project... or to give you that extra discount if you want to buy in bulk yourself. So whether you're looking for just 10g or plaster of paris or 25kg we can make it happen.

Discounts are available to local art groups, students and organisations and we will be happy to set up an account if you wish to buy from us regularly.

We stock materials for many different kinds of projects; from model making to sculpture, cosplay, theatre, film, special fx, fine art, mouldmaking, casting, animation, craftmaking, jewellerymaking... and we are always looking for more areas to cater for so please get in touch if you have any advice for us!
