61 artists and makers at Krowji, Cornwall’s largest creative hub, opened their studio doors once again on the first weekend of December to give visitors the opportunity to see behind the scenes, meet the makers and purchase art, crafts and Christmas gifts.

Visitors were invited to Krowji to see the work that happens within our studio walls and artists and makers had art and crafts for sale, just in time for Christmas! Some artists ran workshops during this time-visitors were invited to pull a screenprint heart with screenprinter Paul Bawden, make a felt bead with felt maker Bettina Holland and create a Christmas kite with artist Clare Summerson. Also on the first and second floor of the Percy Williams building the Krowji tenants had colouring stations and making tables, lots of arty activities to keep everyone entertained!
