Willow Charcoal Daler Medium 15 pieces 5 - 6 mm
Coates from renewable willows grown in Somerset
It was back in the 1960s that Percy Coate began experimenting with the willow he grew to make drawing charcoal. Although it took some years to perfect the technique, by the 1970s he was finally ready to share the new Coates willow charcoal with the world. Percy's grandfather, Robert Coate started in business in 1819 as a 'withy merchant', buying and selling local willow crops. Today Coates is still very much a family concern with members of the family involved in all aspects of the business. For many years now Coates willow charcoal has been recognised as the best quality charcoal in the world.
Charcoal was one of the earliest drawing materials and is still extremely popular for dramatic sketches and drawings. It is naturally watersoluble, allowing you to create interesting wash effects.
Traditional charcoal is ideal for studies and finished drawings and as it is soluble in water, a wide range of tones can be created
