Two local artists have opened a brand new art supply and stationary store in Falmouth.

Salt Art Supply opened its doors last month, offering an assortment of professional art supplies, stationary and creative gifts.

Artists Nyassa Hinde and Rhianna Fowler, both Falmouth University Illustration graduates, are the brains behind the new shop, which can be found on The Moor in Falmouth.

While the shop sells greeting cards, stationery, and unique gifts, it also provides a vast selection of art supplies, including diverse paints, artist pencils, sketchbooks, and drawing inks.

Ms Fowler said :“After we graduated we noticed that there was nowhere local that offered the high quality supplies we needed to continue our creative work.

"Although you can order art and stationery materials online, it’s not quite the same as trying out pens and pencils on tester pads, rifling through notebooks and sketchbooks to find the perfect surface, or browsing through beautifully curated displays for inspiration on new creative projects.”

In addition to household names like Winsor & Newton and Faber-Castell, they are making ecological options available, such as notebooks made from recycled coffee waste.

Their intention is to support their customers in making more eco-conscious choices.

The shop's operating hours are from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday to Saturday, and it is located next to the car park at The Moor, at 24 Killigrew Street, Falmouth.

Ms Hinde said: "We’ve been absolutely blown away by all the support we’ve received so far!

"It’s so wonderful to be in a place where small, local and independent businesses are championed, and we hope that Salt Art Supply will support our local community by making creativity more accessible and offering local artists both professional and amateur the supplies they need to carry out their craft."
