As part of our count down to Christmas we’ve decided to give the festivities a Cornish spin, with a few little tips, some tall stories and a dash of local legend to warm you up for the big day… This is Day 9…
A little while ago we showed you the amazing beach drawings of endangered whales and it appears the artist has been very busy over the last few weeks. Sonia the creator of those life size drawings has recently been exhibited in London with the Royal Society of Marine Artists in their annual exhibition at the Mall Galleries. A few weeks back she was awarded with the Young Marine Artist Award, presented to her by the Worshipful Company of Shipwrights. We are all very proud of Sonia’s amazing achievements and are watching her other occupation – that of artist and conservationist, with great interest. If you missed our first blog about Sonia you can read it here.

Over in our Guernsey shop, we’ve started stocking locally made pannier a cou, or Guernsey fishing baskets to you and me. The craft involved in making them charts a long held island tradition and we caught up with Claire, the artisan behind the finished product, who told us a little more about where they originate from and how she learnt the skill.
