The weather in Cornwall is absolutely beautiful at the moment and I have a yearning to be on a beach.
I also have a wonderful excuse to go to the beach – I am working with a group of makers, all of them living in Devon and Cornwall and part of the regional Cluster of Design Nation on a beach combing adventure with Rue Pigalle. We are each going to be talking about our wonderful part of the World, why it is important and how it influences what we make. I cannot wait!
The event starts in Devon with Alison Shelton Brown, moves west to the Roseland Peninsular in Cornwall where we visit my beach and my studio, across the water to Lucy Spink who will be in her beautiful Cornish garden and, finally, up to the north coast of Cornwall to visit Helen Eastham.
If we were doing this in reality it would take several days but, by doing in virtually, people will be able to enjoy the work of four artists all driven by their passion for the wilds of the South-west of this wonderful Island of ours without leaving their armchair. Oh the wonders of technology!
