On location at Porthmeor Studios

We go behind the scenes at one of the oldest artists’ studios in the UK.

Just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic, Porthmeor Studios have hosted some of the most renowned artists working the UK, including Julius Olsson, Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham.

This month, painter Felicity Mara kindly loaned us her work space – Porthmeor Studio no. 4, to photograph our new collection and for our Modern Creatives Project.

The weather-beaten building symbolises a lasting way of life in the town, where artists and fishermen have worked side by side for generations.
