The Guild

The Poly Guild is our contemporary design and craft shop, located on the Ground Floor. The Guild stocks a range of beautifully made work from artists and craftspeople who live locally or who have studied at Falmouth University, University College of Falmouth or Falmouth School of Art. 

Work includes textiles, jewellery, ceramics, prints, glass and 3D work, exclusively available in Falmouth through The Poly Guild, making the range truly local and distinctive.

If you are an artist and would like your work to be considered for inclusion in The Guild, please email the Guild Manager at
