“Lifeboat art Studio - venue for art courses, exhibitions and events”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We use the Lifeboat studio twice a year as a teaching venue for our stained glass courses (www.vitreus-art.co.uk/classes) and love the place.

Downsides - it's a bit tricky to get to and is accessed down a flight of steps. Sometimes it can get a bit damp inside.

Upsides - it's in a really great location, right by the sea.
It's atmospheric, just right for stimulating artistic endeavour,
It's close to the Ship Inn for refreshment.
Porthleven is well provided with B&Bs, hotels, cottages, pubs, restaurants and shops making the studio venue viable for week courses as well as one-day events.
It's very reasonably priced as a venue.
Porthleven is well-situated for arty activities away from the studio too.

So, all round it's a great venue. For exhibitions, Porthleven can get quite busy in season so there are plenty of potential art buyers around if you time your show right.
Can't wait to get there again this year for another course!
