Although the official start of autumn is still a few days away, things in Cornwall are certainly feeling more autumnal by the minute. The weather is cooler and crispy leaves are finding their way along our paths. No matter how much we love a Cornish summer there is something about the colours of autumn that we can’t help but get excited about.

This week we’ve been reminiscing about our weekend at Port Eliot Festival. It was lovely to meet so many of our customers so we wanted to share our “How To Make A Fabric Fish” workshop with those of you who couldn’t join us! It’s a great rainy day activity, something we seem to be having a lot of at the moment!

Spring Has Sprung in Seasalt Shop Windows

posted on March 6th, 2015 by Nikki Phillips

The lighter nights are creeping in, the beautiful flowers are peeking through and the clocks will soon jump forward, all of which indicates one thing, spring is just around the corner (20th March)!

To herald winter’s end, our very clever Window Dressers have transformed the front of our shops with showers of bluebells.

Each flower is made by hand- the team delicately cut the narrow bell-shapes out of card, folded them by hand and then secured the leaves using split-pins. The purple blooms are carefully hung with fishing wire or placed on a mannequin’s head!

This window has definitely given us a spring in our step so let us know what you think by leaving a comment below or head over to Facebook or Twitter.

A Woollen Christmas Window

posted on December 5th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

Our window dressers, Kathryn, Tara and Janet, have been busy creating yet another fantastic Christmas window display. Drawing inspiration from our woolly heritage and love for crafts, the window is a knitter’s haven. With knitted headwear, woollen Christmas trees and presents wrapped in yarn; this year’s window is full of festive fun.

To show you just how much work goes into building a new window display we’ve made this short video for you to enjoy. The Tavy Tars, our lovely shanty singers who often sing at our new shop openings, recorded the soundtrack for us. It fits perfectly, don’t you think?

Our window dressers are a talented bunch, you can keep up to date with what they’ve been creating on their pinterest board.

Step 7: The tail needs to be rolled and secured with a pin so that it doesn’t get caught when sewing around the body.

Step 8: Lay the body parts on top of each other, right sides facing, and stitch around the sides. Remember to leave a gap so you can turn your fish the right way!

Seasalt Daffodils window display

Our March window theme is Daffodils and window dressers  Kathryn and Tara have been busy making lovely Cornish daffodils.

Seasal window display daffs

Kathryn and Tara made the daffs using tiny pompoms of wool,  attached them onto the end of bamboo sticks and then wrapped tissue paper petals around the pom pom.  Each daffodil has its own unique name, which has been stamped onto the luggage tags.

The inspiration for the window came from Ron Scamp, a daffodil breeder in Falmouth. You can read his story here
