Krowji (Cornish for workshop or shed) is an up-cycled grammar school in Cornwall’s former industrial heartland and provides an invaluable workspace for hundreds of creative businesses since 2005. Krowji is Cornwall’s largest creative hub and provides studios, workspaces, offices, cafe, meeting rooms and more. The community at Krowji includes painters, jewellers, furniture makers, ceramicists, textile artists, web designers, theatre companies and musicians.
Beside The Wave was established in 1989 in Cornwall, and is amongst some of the best known and well established contemporary art galleries in the County. The London gallery is Beside The Waves second space, which opened back in 2015.
