Form Art Festival
Arts & Crafts
30th Sep 2022 - 2nd Oct 2022
UNTIL Sunday 2nd October
A new annual visual arts festival for Falmouth including a 3 day art fair at Princess Pavilion, workshops at the Poly, Young Creatives Art trail, exhibitions and demonstrations.
This county of Cornwall has long been a source of inspiration, refuge, and community. Both shaped by and simultaneously shaping the creatives who call it home. Artists and makers here are influenced by the rhythms of the landscape that surrounds us, inspired by both the raw dynamism and the gentle ebb and flow. We believe the art created in Cornwall is unparalleled and deserves to be celebrated by both familiar and new faces.
2022 marks the first year of a new annual festival which celebrates the visual arts heritage and vibrant creative culture of Falmouth. Form is offering a series of captivating events such as workshops and exhibitions in venues across the town, plus the main event - a 3-day art fair at Princess Pavilion. Here you'll be able to immerse yourself in the work of over 70 hugely talented Cornish artists and craftspeople and purchase directly from these small creative enterprises. There will also be music in the bandstand, food stalls, and demonstrations.
