The Coach House Renovations – Complete September 2022

When we took on our characterful period property ‘The Coach House’ in September 2020 we knew that there was lots of work ahead to make it the best possible venue. Essential works and renovations began with a planned completion date of Spring 2022. However, due to unforeseen building delays our workshop programme will now recommence in September.

Until then we will not be holding any workshops at the Art shop & Café in Truro Centre, TR1 2SJ.

Coach House Location


There are a 2 lunch options at workshops – simply choose the best one for you!

£10 Lunch ticket. Enjoy a homemade vegetarian quiche and fresh mixed salad, with a choice of bottled apple juice or elderflower presse. To order a lunch simply add a food ticket to your order at time of booking, or add one at a later date. Just make sure you order at least 2 days prior to the workshop date.

• Alternatively, you are very welcome to bring your own packed lunch.


Free tea, coffee & biscuits will be available during the morning and afternoon breaks.


Each workshop requires students to supply their own materials according to the list provided by our artists, unless otherwise stated.

You will receive 10% off all materials purchased in our art shop (26 River Street Truro) for the workshop – where applicable please purchase a paint share ticket online at least 2 days ahead.

Order items from the materials list by emailing us at least 2 days prior to the workshop date. We will call you back to talk you though any options and take payment.


For just £10 students are welcome to make full use of our paints while attending selected workshops. We hope this makes trying a new medium much easier – no investing in paints that might not be used again! We will provide Daler-Rowney Georgian Oils or System 3 Acrylics.

(All other items on the materials list must be supplied by students. Hand sanitiser and appropriate social distancing are required if handling paints.)

This option is available on selected workshops, just add the ‘paint share’ option to your basket via online booking. Email workshops@truroartscompany.co.uk to check any details with us.
