Making art affordable for all
We are a member of the Own Art scheme, the interest free loan initiative created by Arts Council England. We can offer interest free loans to enable you to purchase works of art and craft. This innovate initiative allows art buyers to spread the cost of their purchase to suit their respective financial situations.
You can borrow up to £25,000 or as little as £100, and pay back the loan in 10 monthly instalments – interest free*.
(*Typical 0% APR. Offer subject to age and status. Terms and conditions apply.)
The loan can be used to cover one single piece plus framing and delivery or several pieces together.
What is the Own Art scheme?
The scheme is a national initiative that makes buying contemporary art and craft affordable by letting you spread the cost of your purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan.
Who runs the scheme?
The scheme is an Arts Council England initiative operated by Creative Sector Services CIC, a Community Interest Company, in partnership with Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and credit provider Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance.
How does it work?
The loan is processed online before your purchase. Each loan application is subject to a credit check. If your application is successful you will receive your artwork within a week.
