Inspire Makers is home to the work of over 50 curated contemporary Cornish artists and makers.

January opening hours Wed to Sat 11am-4pm.

Become a maker

Have you ever wanted to learn new skills or try different crafts? Are you curious about how artists and makers do what they do?

Our workshop programme offers a wide range of “kitchen table” based classes to inspire you to find your creative path. The kitchen table is where most makers start after all!

The classes are designed to give you an introduction to various artforms, through half or full day sessions, and give you the confidence to carry on exploring at home without needing a large outlay on equipment or materials.

Not sure you are creative? Perhaps you haven’t found the right class, the right environment or the right outlet for your imagination. Inspire Makers believes everyone can be creative in some way. Our programme assumes no prior knowledge or ability and encourages you to have a go with a small group of like-minded people.

Classes are held by makers showcased in the shop, offering you a chance to learn more about them, what inspires them and what they create.

Please read the workshop descriptions carefully so you can be sure it is right for you. Please also see our Workshop Terms and Conditions which include the cancellation policy.

If you need any further information, please feel free to contact us, and we will be happy to help you fulfil your creative destiny!

Create your own fused glass Christmas decorations in this fun, introductory workshop to the art of fused glass.

What will I learn?

We will show you the different types of glass, how they are used, how to add inclusions and how they are fired.

Please note: that due to the time it takes to fire fused glass, your handmade hanger will need to be collected from the shop at a later date or posted on to you (for a small additional charge).

What do I need to bring?

The cost of the workshop covers all the materials required as well as tea, coffee, soft drinks etc.

What should I wear?

Due to the nature of the tools and materials used in the class you are required to wear sturdy, closed toed shoes.  Aprons and safety goggles are provided.

About your tutor
