Make Merry Workshops with our Seasalt Friends

posted on December 10th, 2015 by Laura

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas here at Seasalt if we didn’t celebrate our love for all things crafty and unique! In true Seasalt spirit, we launched our first Make Merry workshops in our Falmouth, Woodbridge, Bath and Chester shops.

Our Seasalt Friends were invited to come along and the evenings were hosted by Anna Roberts, a member of our very own creative window display team; Kathryn Fowler, one of our print designers; and our good friend Jennie Maziels, illustrator of pop-up books and re-inventor of the iron on patch!

Our ladies busied themselves making paper Christmas tree decorations and embellishing Seasalt Sailor Shirts, while tucking into Cornish nibbles and having giggles with fellow Seasalt enthusiasts. They also had time to shop our latest collections, where many took advantage of their exclusive, one-night-only Make Merry discounts!  It was lovely to see them walk away from the evening with their unique creations, their goody bags and smiling faces.

We couldn’t help but capture the festive fun on film:

Design a Jute Workshop at Port Eliot Festival

posted on August 7th, 2015 by Matt

Thanks to everyone who took part in our “Design a Jute” workshop at the 2015 Port Eliot Festival. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer and more creative bunch!


We asked our workshoppers to make an illustration to go on a new Seasalt jute bag. They had just an hour to plan and draw their design on the the theme “Cornwall and the sea”. Everyone worked really hard and we were thrilled with all the wonderful finished designs (which you can see for yourself below). Read the rest of this entry »

April Showers Bring May Flowers

posted on April 30th, 2015 by Nikki


Here at Seasalt we love it when it rains and we’re not afraid to admit it!

We don’t let a shower stand in our way of exploring the beautiful Cornish coastal paths and cliffs, we embrace it. We love the sweet smell before a cloudburst, the tiny droplets landing on our noses and the relaxing pitter-patter of the rain as it falls on a long, sandy stretch of beach.

To celebrate our love of the wet stuff and to raise funds for Marie Curie we held a ‘wear your wellies to work day’ last week. There were colourful flowers planted in wellingtons, rain themed treats and a ‘welly good’ photo-shoot. Our Distribution Centre devised an amazing weather themed playlist for the day, which you can listen to below, and our staff even had the chance to win tickets to the Eden Project!

Here’s a sneak peek of what we got up to!

Remember, Remember the 5th of November

posted on October 30th, 2014 by Laura

“Remember, remember, the 5th of November; gunpowder, treason and plot; I see no reason why gunpowder, treason; should ever be forgot.”

Bonfire Night was originally celebrated as a commemoration for foiling the grizzly plot to blow up King James I of England and other Parliament Members. Guy Fawkes, along with several others, had devised a plot to blow up the King and the Members of Parliament by setting light to gunpowder hidden beneath the Parliament. Read the rest of this entry »

Port Eliot Festival 2014

posted on July 31st, 2014 by Laura


Our Garment Tech, Heidi Mitchell, and her husband Jonny attended the Port Eliot festival in the beautiful grounds of Port Eliot House, St Germans from the 24th to 27th July. The house sits in 6000 acres of beautiful parkland with rolling pastures, ancient woodland, shady rhododendron groves and overlooks the River Tiddy. The festival is described as “an annual celebration of words, music, imagination, ideas, nature, food, fashion, flowers, laughter, exploration and fun.” Heidi & Jonny volunteered as stewards to ensure everyone there had a wonderful time, but when not working were able to enjoy the many delights the festival had to offer.


The main Park Stage hosted some great music acts including Beth Orton, Public Service Broadcasting, Slow Club and The James Hunter Six. Country star Jeb Loy Nichols charmed audiences down by the river. The Kernow King, Shazia Mirza & Elvis McGonagell had audiences in stitches with their comedy acts. For those who wanted a more relaxing experience, there was a Hendricks Gin bar by the river where you could listen to the many talks in the Idler Academy, watch people wild swimming in the Tiddy or listen to old 78’s played on a gramophone.


Walking around the festival, or sitting down ‘people watching’ in the sunshine, random acts would suddenly appear to entertain you. A ladies dance group ‘Continuum’ began dancing to old records on the lawn in front of the house. Or you would be rudely awoken from your contented bliss by the ‘1-minute disco’ suddenly turning up and blaring out Billy Idol tunes.


There was plenty of food on offer and celebrated chefs giving talks and demonstrations. Fortnum & Mason set up their famous Fountain Restaurant in the Orangery and had a ‘Tea Tuk’ for refreshments. For those wanting to dance all night, there was the ‘Elephant Club’ – a big top style tent in the middle of a large rhododendron bush – with an interesting sloping dancefloor that made you wonder just how many gins you’d enjoyed by the river! If you were feeling creative there were workshops in the Anthropologie Tent or at The Badgers Sett where you could make a flower & foliage festival headdress or bunting for your tent. For the kids – there was ‘Hullabaloo’ and the Wild Woodland Summer Ball.


The weather was beautiful all weekend – really hot sunshine and a gentle breeze. No Glastonbury mud at Port Eliot! Heidi, though, was very pleased on the last day when packing up the tent, to find the weather had broken and she got a chance to wear her NORI JACKET and SHORT WELLIES. They were great protection from the rain showers and wet grass.

With thanks to all at Port Eliot for putting on a great festival. See you next year!

Get out in Cornwall this Easter weekend!

posted on April 15th, 2014 by Emma Raczkowski


Claiming the top 3 spots in this weekend’s Sunday Times guide to Britain’s best hidden beaches, Cornwall is definitely the place to be this Easter.

Pedn Vounder was in first place, closely followed by Bosahan, near the Minnack Theatre, with Lansallos Cove in third place.

We’re big fans of Maenporth Beach, as you can probably tell from our Instagram feed! It’s just down the road from our office.

Some other great ideas to keep kids of all ages entertained this Easter:

  1. Take a walk along the picturesque South West Coast Path
  2. Enjoy a refreshing Spring dip in the sea – pack your wetsuit!
  3. Or just watch the Pro’s at the English National Surfing Championships in Newquay (3 – 5 May)
  4. Take a ferry boat ride along the River Fal
  5. Go mountain biking along the Tamar Trails, bring your own or hire one there
  6. If the weathers not so great the spa at the St Michaels Hotel is just the ticket
  7. The National Maritime Museum is another great visit
  8. Check out the chocolate festival at the Eden Project
