We believe that craft should be accessible to everyone, regardless of income or ability. We offer a range of funded community projects to participate in, where you can meet new people, develop skills and tap into your creativity.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“A really worthwhile community initiative that I’m delighted to support. Through donating my ceramic kiln, tools and materials to Camborne Contemporary Crafts Hub, I am confident that its enthusiastic and professional promoters will introduce the maximum number of people to the empowering creative process.”
Anthony Fagin - artist and writer
Some of our constantly evolving events and projects.
The #IWILL movement champions that all children and young people should be supported and empowered to make a positive difference on the issues that affect their lives, their communities and broader society.
This youth led project seeks to address issues the participants have chosen 'Marine Animal Rights' and 'Pretty Privilege and Gender Inequality in Cornish Institutions'. By developing their debate and pottery skills, this 10 week program is building up to their very own Protest Pottery Exhibition at Create Contemporary Crafts Hub.
Camborne Streetdraw24 2023
September - October 2023
This 24 hour Community Art Event was hosted in collaboration with Streetdraw24 CIC. Designed to raise money and awareness for St Petrocs and to encourage participants to see where they live through fresh eyes.
Drawers took to the streets of Camborne, either independently or on one of our organised draws to capture their surroundings. The Drawings were then donated to Create CIC for our week long exhibition.
Our 28 drawers raised £350! Thank you to everyone who contributed.
