Churchtown Arts is a small family run business, situated in one of the oldest listed buildings in St.Agnes.
Within our overstuffed emporium you will find an inspirational mix of stylish gifts for you and your home, with cards and gift wrap to match. If you love Cornwall and want a little reminder to take home, there is lots for you, designed and made here in Cornwall. Wild Gorse or Sea Salt scented candles and soaps, jewellery, cookery and foraging books, slate signs, art glass, coastal collections and plenty of Poldark!
If you prefer, we also stock well known brands like Sophie Allport, Bronte throws and cushions, Garden Trading, Portmerion and Gisela Graham.
We also have in-house artists and craftspeople —- in the main shop area we have a photographer and a milliner, as well as a small antique section. Through the courtyard is a leatherworker, making bags and belts, as well as unique items not seen anywhere else. Upstairs is The Loft Studio, where Celia paints local scenes in oils and watercolour, and produces prints and cards. She also undertakes commission work.
If you have visited our village, you will know it is a very friendly, vibrant village, with wonderful beaches, rock pools, surf and footpaths… not forgetting all the pubs! Definitely an inspiring place to live and work in, as we hope is reflected in our choice of unusual and ordinary, eclectic and unforgettable collections.
To create all of this, we actively encourage local crafts folk and artists, as well as attending the massive [tiring] and fun trade shows, and generally hoping that the ambitious amongst the Cornish will continue to visit and supply us with new “stuff”. How do all these wonderful designers continue to think of something new and fresh?
Come visit us and enjoy our old shop…. And stop and have a chat with us.
