Comments about Winsor & Newton Aluminum Bristol Easels:
I use easels for artwork, mainly drawings and airbrushing. My previous easel was made of wood. Non-adjustable and bulky. I've used this type of easel in a previous seminar and loved the versatility. It syores in its own carryi g case and can be put up just about anywahere. Exactly what I wanted!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was looking for an easel that is light weight to use for plein air watercolor painting and this easel is ideal - lets you decide height and easy to adjust. The price was great and a great design.

sketch easel works to display lightweight pieces
By Community Arts Assn
I bought it on sale so that influences the degree of value for money spent. I used three easels to display canvases. The easel sets up easily and dismantles equally readily. It doesn't weigh much and comes with a carrying case. It should be easy to store. That is an issue for me. Not so great is that it is lightweight and I hesitate to set larger framed pieces on it.
Easy to use Easel, Easy to break down, versatile for table
from Berlin MD
The easel has been used in the studio fully extended for floor use and also for table work. It was quite easy to set up and brake down. The storage/carrier is quite portable.
I appreciated the prompt shipment and really like my easel.

I bought this Watercolor easel because of the Winsor and Newton name thinking it would be high quality. I know people who own the regular easel, it's OK, but the watercolor easel is difficult to set up. the adjustment to set the easel flat uses a piece that is easily lost in the field, it's hard to explain, but it's a bad design. I've seen another easel that uses a knob that you twist. Wish I had bought this, I don't use this easel because of all the problems setting it up and fitting it back in the carry bag. When I tried to contact Winsor and Newton to replace a part I got no response. If I could return this for something else I would.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
