Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Happy Crafters


This is a twice-weekly arts and handicrafts club for older people living at Miners Court and in and around Redruth. The club offers creative opportunities for participants living with on-going health issues and / or disabilities. It was conceived and is run by the residents association and is having a proven direct impact on the health and well-being of participants.

Reviving skills promotes participants well being, for example when eye sight rapidly deteriorates.

‘As a result of doing the activities here I have seen a positive change, my specialist doctors think it’s a direct influence from happy crafters.’  It also provides a meeting space and encourages sociability.

‘I have been enjoying knitting and getting to know other people as well as getting out of my flat.’
