Paint from a wheelchair or bed with the world’s most adjustable artist’s easel

The Freasel can be used seated, standing or lying down, making it the perfect wheelchair accessible easel. It’s specially designed so you can get close to your canvas, free to explore your creativity through painting, drawing and mark making.

The Freasel’s high level of adjustability means it’s perfect for mouth and foot painters. With the help of an assistant, the easel arms can easily be adjusted to find the ideal painting setup for you. With the flexibility of the Freasel you’ll be able to find the most comfortable position and paint for even longer.

Check out artwork by the Birchwood Painters, a group of disabled artists who worked with us to design the very first Freasel, which continues to help them create unique paintings and drawings to this day!
