On the Judging Panel for Falmouth University’s Scarf Competition

posted on February 15th, 2017 by Sophie Chadwick

On Saturday morning I headed down to Porthmeor Studios in St Ives to judge a scarf competition for Falmouth University textile design students. It was a stormy day, with dark skies, and sleet blowing horizontally at our faces. There weren’t many brave enough to walk across Porthmeor Beach.

The students had been briefed by their tutor, Simon Clarke, to design a square, silk scarf inspired by either the artists who had worked at Porthmeor studios or St Ives and the landscape of West Cornwall.

When I arrived, I was greeted by all of the 19 students who were chatting excitedly, wrapped up in their hats, gloves and winter coats. Then I proceeded to the Borlase Smart Room where their chosen scarves had been beautifully displayed by Simon. The judging panel were discussing the format of the day. Read the rest of this entry »

#LoveFalmouth Exhibition

posted on December 6th, 2016 by Nikki


We were very excited to see so many Seasalt fans enter the #LoveFalmouth photography competition this summer.

The six-month long social media photography competition, hosted by Falmouth BID, led to a fantastic response from residents, visitors and students alike.

Each month, entrants were tasked with a different #LoveFalmouth theme to keep it interesting:

May – #LoveCommunity
June – #Lovethesea
July – #LoveOutdoors
August – #LoveSummer
September – #LoveCreative
October – #LoveAutumn

The competition received over 800 entries, including some touching, humorous and original stories, which really highlighted people’s love for our town.

We were asked to be prize partners for the competition which meant that we had the very difficult decision of choosing a winner each month. The standard of photography was excellent which made judging very tricky!

The winning images, along with the runners-up, will be on display in the Main Gallery of The Poly until 10th December 2016.

The exhibition is free, so do pop along and be inspired by Falmouth!

Walking the Great Flat Lode and discovering Cornwall's mining history

All around Cornwall echoes of our mining past are visible on the landscape. Whether you’re in a little village or taking a stroll along the clifftops, you’ll never be far from a tall, brick engine house. One of the most beautiful walks around Cornwall’s historic landscape is The Great Flat Lode Trail. Found between Camborne and Pool, the circular route passes some of the best preserved mining buildings in Cornwall. Read the rest of this entry »

Exploring Poldark’s Cornwall

posted on September 4th, 2016 by Laura


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 »
