Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Morvah Schoolhouse is a unique gallery, craft centre and café. Originally a chapel, built in 1744 and visited by Charles Wesley, the building was then used as a Sunday School for the children of Morvah. The building fell into dilapidation but in 1999 was converted into a hub for the local community, arts and events.
Located in the hamlet of Morvah, on the B3306 between St Just and St Ives, the centre is a showcase for artists and makers inspired by the wild and ancient landscapes of West Penwith.
The upstairs gallery, with stunning rural and sea views, hosts an annual programme of exhibitions that reflect contemporary rural life. It is also available as a venue for events and workshops.
While downstairs our craft shop sells a wide range of traditional and contemporary crafts from over 40 designer makers and crafts people.
In our café we serve simple rustic fare that is either grown or made locally. The Schoolhouse welcomes all four-legged friends in the cafe, but not upstairs in the Gallery.
