Truro Cathedral – Sign A Slate

posted on May 12th, 2016 by Nikki Phillips

Did you know that Truro Cathedral are currently raising funds to replace their whole roof? The original roof which was completed in 1908, is now in urgent need of repair. It’s going to cost a whopping £3.2 million to replace and over 60,000 slates to preserve the cathedral for future generations!

Truro Cathedral

To raise money for the campaign, the cathedral have created a unique opportunity for people to support the conservation project and leave a lasting message for future generations to come. ‘How?’ we hear you cry. By asking people to donate to the cathedral, and in return they’ll be able to  ‘Sign A Slate’ to go on the roof. It’s a great way to wish someone a happy birthday, remember a loved one or even propose!

Set in the heart of our only city here in Cornwall, Truro Cathedral is a precious landmark which is why Seasalt is very happy to announce that we’ve signed up to be a VIP sponsor.

Our  Marketing Director, Emma set the team a challenge to design a slate and chose three winners to enjoy an extra special VIP signing experience with the Dean.

Last night the lucky winners Sam, Miranda and Lisa, hopped on the train from Falmouth to Truro and made their way to the cathedral, where they enjoyed bubbly & canapés, met the Dean and signed their slates.

The ladies had a great time and helped put their mark on the project. Their slates will be positioned on the east side of the cathedral so keep an eye out for them!

#SeasaltArt Competition

posted on May 10th, 2016 by Laura Ellis

IMG_0002

We’ve had some incredible entries to our #SeasaltArt competition, and a real breadth of creativity. From oils and watercolours, to lino prints and embroidery, we knew from the start that choosing a winner wasn’t going to be easy.

After whittling down over 200 entries to a shortlist of 31 (we really struggled to make it 30!) we passed them over to our in-house Seasalt Artists to take on the task of choosing the winner – and we were right, it wasn’t easy!

There was a lot of discussion on who should win and after a long debate with the Seasalt Artist’s putting their best cases forward, they finally decided on a winner, but with the strict orders we also had to include a couple of runners up as the standard was so high.

*Drum roll please* and the winner is…

“My favourite was this skilfully made woodcut. I really like the way the scene has been stylised to the minimum detail. The sweeping shapes of the clouds and waves are super nice. I also like textures on the hillsides and pebbly beach, created with different lines and dots. Above all it has a lovely mood that we all admired very much!” – Matt

Our runners up:

Leonie Snow

“I was particularly drawn to this collage by the beautiful mix of watercolour, textures and fine line detail. The colours are calm and yet vibrant, and the general composition is fantastic. A very interesting and beautiful piece that really represents Cornwall.” – Jen

Harriet Sullivan

We loved Harriet’s two entries and thought she deserved a special mention as the entries, although on the same subject matter, take two very different forms.

“We found the composition and detail in Harriet’s picture really beautiful and inspirational. Extremely Seasalty. I especially loved the stitching, and patterns on the fish and the waves.” – Emily

“We loved the colour and detail in this painting, it’s vibrant and has great composition. It really reminds us of Cornwall’s quaint seaside villages.” – Mili & Jodie
