Winsor & Newton Celebrates World Watercolor Month

Monday, August 28th, 2017

WCMONTHWinsor & Newton was honored this year to be a sponsor of World Watercolor Month in July.  Charlie O’Shields whose love of the medium inspired him to create a movement dedicated to inspiring the use of watercolors and encouraging creativity originated the World Watercolor Month concept.  Winsor & Newton was one of several brands that provided products for prizes.
Winsor & Newton Watercolor Markers were shared as giveaways and watercolor sets were won as prizes.  Additionally Winsor & Newton provided over $1,500.00 in art supplies for the Dreaming Zebra Foundation, a charity dedicated to providing underprivileged children and young adults around the world the opportunity to explore creativity and the arts.
This exciting event encouraged over 9,000 artists to join the movement and hashtag their work, #worldwatercolormonth.  Over 37,000 watercolors were produced and via Charlie’s efforts, the Dreaming Zebra Foundation received over $7,500.00 worth of art materials.  Winsor & Newton is looking forward to continuing their support of such a worthwhile endeavor!

It’s never too early to plan for next years World Watercolor Month!

Winsor & Newton Brings Something New to the Surface

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017

 

wndisplayWinsor & Newton recently reenergized its offerings with two new surface introductions: Water Colour Paper and Canvas. In their tireless efforts for top quality products they have resourced new factories, new specifications, and higher standards to offer you excellent surfaces that complement Winsor & Newton’s established product ranges at great values for consumers.

The Winsor & Newton Water Colour Paper is a cylinder mould-made paper manufactured with the finest raw materials. The collection offers two tiers: professional water colour paper which is 100% cotton and is offered in a variety of surface textures and weights, and the classic water colour paper which is made of archival grade wood pulp. The professional tier offers both 140 lb. and 300 lb. papers in cold pressed, hot pressed, and rough textures. The classic is offered in 140 lb. cold pressed. Both tiers are internally and externally sized, exceptionally strong, and have a natural whiteness that is acid-free and doesn’t use optical brighteners.

The canvas collection comprises an entirely new range of products. Winsor & Newton is focusing on a smaller number of better-selling SKUs to introduce to the market, and there’s something for every consumer. The classic range offers 84 items in both cotton traditional and cotton traditional deep edge. The professional range has 96 items in cotton traditional, cotton traditional deep edge, and a small assortment of linen traditional. The professional range also includes the Pro-Stretcher™, an innovative stretching device custom-made for Winsor & Newton. Both ranges are hand-stretched and meticulously crafted with attention to detail.
