Arts and craft supply store, exhibition space, cafe,
kids art club, adult workshops and general place of artistic awesomeness!

Upcoming Workshops

We regularly hold workshops at Truro Arts, in all kinds of mediums and for all range of abilities.

Workshops take place on our mezzanine floor and last anywhere from 3 hours to all day (with a lunch break in our lovely adjoining cafe, of course).

A place on a workshop in your area of interest, whether it be painting, screenprinting or clay sculpture (or anything else for that matter) is great as a gift for a loved one or for a creative present to yourself!

Cancellation policy: Workshops are non-refundable unless we can fill your space.
