Charlestown is a lovely little Georgian port town on the edge of St Austell. I’m part of a co-operative Cornish craft shop there with about 10 other makers and artists all doing something different, and it’s there that I have my largest display of pieces and products. It’s so lovely to be part of a group of such talented people.
We take turns to look after the shop and so I can be found in the Craft Kiln from 10:30am-5:30pm on the days below. If you’d like to see my spinning tops in action or would like to know anything about what I do or have any other questions I’d be happy to share.
The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Nr Mevagissey.
I feel very lucky and proud to be turning at the workshop and sawmill on the Heligan Estate, using timber grown, felled, milled, and seasoned all on site! It’s a wonderful place and it’s harvest time in October so I’d definitely recommend a visit, even on days when I’m not there!
Heligan is quite a new venture for me but it looks like I’m settling on being there 3 days a week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Contact me to be sure if you do particulary want to see me in action there but otherwise I’ll try to keep on top of my Facebook and Twitter page to keep you up to date!
