posted on August 26th, 2016 by Laura

Pottery jugs thrown by Matt the Seasalt Leach Pottery apprentice

Since my last blog I have been super busy. I’ve spent about two weeks on mug handles which we have all been retrained on to make sure they are being done correctly. I’ve also spent a lot more time loading glaze kilns, especially the large kiln which has helped me learn more about where the hot and cold spots are, and better understand how the kiln fires and how the circulation of the air effects the firing. As well as loading and unloading bisque kilns, and throwing mugs and egg cups. Read the rest of this entry »

Why do we support the Fishermen’s Mission?

It’s the only charity working around the entire UK coastline that provides 24 hour emergency support as well as crucial practical, financial, spiritual and emotional care to fishermen and their families.

Cornwall and its seas are beautiful and calm for lots of the year, but come the bad weather they can be perilous. In fact, fishing is known as the most dangerous livelihood in the UK. We first started supporting the Fishermen’s Mission in 2012, and we’re proud to have raised over £20,000 for them so far.

A few of our most recent fundraising efforts include…
