Fred Aldous Easel Hire

We offer an easel hire service from our Manchester shop where you can hire our Solid Hardwood Sketching Easels. These folding easels are ideal for painting, exhibition display or weddings. Made out of oiled beechwood, they transport easily.

Our hire easels can accommodate a canvas up to a maximum height of 67cm (261/2″) and have telescopic legs that adjust for best working position.

Overall Height: 168cm (66″)
Weight: 1.4 kg (3lb 4oz)

All hired easels will need to be delivered back to us at our Manchester store: 37 Lever Street, Manchester, M1 1LW.

The hire charge for each easel is £10.00 for up to 60 days.
There is a deposit charge of £20.00 for each easel hired.

We will refund your deposit on the safe return of the easels within the 60 day period. Please retain your proof of purchase to enable us to refund your deposit.


We check the easels before every hire, but you must also check each easel yourself. Please make sure the easel is in fully working condition and if you notice any missing pieces when you receive your easel, please contact us on 0161 236 4224 within 24 hours to alert us. Failure to do this will result in the loss of your deposit.
