Not far from our Padstow shop is a charity doing big things for the lobster population. The National Lobster Hatchery focuses on the education and research of marine conservation and how this effects the nation’s favourite crustacean.

Exploring Poldark’s Cornwall

posted on September 4th, 2016 by Laura

POLDARK-JUTE

Poldark is back and we’re just a tiny bit excited! The design studios have been a buzz with anticipation for the return of the rugged Aiden Turner Cornish scenery to our screens. The hit BBC drama is filmed all around Cornwall, and in many of the same locations we’ve used to shoot our collections. We spend a lot of time exploring our beloved county and although we haven’t bumped into the Poldark stars just yet we have visited a lot of the film locations, here are a few of our favourites… Read the rest of this entry »

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. There’s no escaping the sea when you’re in Cornwall – happily it’s around almost every corner – and at the heart of Cornwall’s culture and traditional industry are our fishing communities. 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…
