In art it is always better to buy good materials, maybe less but good quality, otherwise it will be frustrating to reach a good result. In any Fine Art shop you can find all that's needed:

A block of watercolour paper 300gr, medium or fine grain with all sides glued. 

As we will see in the first class with only the three primary colours you can reach a good palette: primary yellow, red (magenta) and blue (cyan).

If you want a basic palette I recommend to buy two different kinds of yellow, red and blue so you can reach even more colours:

For example:
Yellows: Lemon and Indian yellow;
Reds: Scarlet and Magenta;
Blues: Cyan and Prussian Blue

Extra colours: Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue and black.

Usually every brush for water colours in a Fine Art store can be good. The cheapest of good quality can be the Winsor & Newton Cotman Brush. I suggest the round brush n.10 and n.14.
