We provide refreshments during the workshop, this includes tea, quality coffee and biscuits. 

Wheelchair access

Our access door is quite narrow, please email for measurements in case you require a wheelchair access.

Our address

We are located at Ground Floor, PMA House, 7 Freechurch Passage, St Ives, PE27 5AY. This address is for our front entrance and deliveries. We have a side entrance to the Inspiration Studio which we ask you to use. The entrance is clearly marked with Creative Craft Academy logo.


There is no parking at the venue. The best parking option is St Ives Park & Ride, Saint Ives, PE27 4LG. It takes 6-8 minutes to reach the workshop venue from the car park.

Where to stay

If you are travelling from far away or simply would like to stay longer in St Ives, we have a corporate rate at the hotel next door (The Golden Lion). The cost is £70 for a single room and £80 for a double occupancy room. Please contact for details of how to book. 

Where to eat

Being in the city centre has its advantages - a great selection of places to eat is one of them. Some of our recommendations are:

The Golden Lion

Great food but do allow enough time to have your meal. All lunch breaks during our workshops are 1h long, we would suggest informing the staff that you only have an hour.

The Swan and Angel

Very affordable pub food. It's a Wetherspoon pub, service is efficient but the pub gets very busy during meal times.

Sandwiches, paninis and cakes, as well as coffee can be purchased from Costa and Greggs across the road from our office. 

Craft shopping

We are not set up for the members of the public to walk around the warehouse, however, all our products are displayed in the Inspiration Room and can be requested at the beginning of the workshop. These will then be picked and packed for you and you can pay at the end of your workshop.
