The next Makers' Market is on Saturday 29 June, which is also Mazey Day in Penzance.

The Makers’ Market is a carefully curated event, showcasing the work of local and regional makers, with a focus on quality, innovation and creativity. At home in one of the major contemporary art venues in Cornwall, it is a platform for both established makers as well as start-ups, and committed to promoting contemporary design, artisanry and the handmade.

We are now taking applications.
