Art Supply Shops In Singapore

Where can we get art supplies in Singapore? Where do I buy bookbinding tools in Singapore?

Those are the most common questions we get from our students. So…

Here’s our compilation of Art Supply Shops in Singapore. We will keep this list updated as we discover new shops.

How to use this list

The art supply stores are listed alphabetically. On top of a short description, we provided information that we’d like to know ourselves. These include the address with a link to Google Maps for stores with a single address, a link to their official website (if any), as well as their operation hours.

Do note that these information were obtained online, and may not be 100% accurate. The best way to avoid a wasted trip is to contact the store directly to confirm their opening hours and the availability of your desired items.

We want this list to be a useful list for all crafters, handicraft addicts, DIY-ers, etc in Singapore. So do let us know if there are additional information that you’d think should be provided, and any of the Art Supply Shops you frequent but which have not found its way onto this list 🙂
