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!
