Cornish Makers and Artists

Inspire Makers is delighted to be able to showcase over 50 Cornish contemporary design-led artists and crafts people, with a mix of well-known makers and new talent on display.

Each artist or maker represents a different style or technique within their chosen field to highlight the vast diversity of creative expression possible through the individual application and development of skills within that discipline.

Buying handcrafted work supports small creative businesses and means you have something truly special, and often unique, to appreciate for many years to come.
