The Gallery at London Glassblowing are delighted to announce the launch of our participation in the Arts Council England's Own Art Scheme.
Own Art makes buying art easy and affordable by letting you spread the cost of your purchase over 10 months with an interest free loan. Why not start a collection of your own today from as little as £10 per month?
Own Art loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to a maximum of £2,000 for the purchase of works.
Ask for Own Art
Once you've found the piece of work that you want to buy, just let the gallery staff know that you'd like to apply for an Own Art loan to finance your purchase.
Don't forget that if you are applying for the loan in person (rather than buying online) you'll need to have proof of ID with you in the form of a driver's licence or utility bill, along with a credit or debit card as proof of signature.
It only takes 10 minutes!
Staff in the gallery will take you through the loan application process, which normally takes about 10 minutes. Once you've given all the information they need, you'll get an instant decision.
There's no deposit necessary (although some galleries may ask you to provide one if you need to take the work away with you immediately).
Live with the art you love
Once you've signed the paperwork, you're nearly there.
Ask the gallery when you can collect the work (usually no more than 14 days after your purchase) - and then its yours!
Our finance partner Hitachi Capital Consumer finance will send you a welcome letter and the 10 monthly payments will be collected by direct debit from your account starting a few weeks after you've made your purchase.
Simple as that.
