Come join Seasalt at Port Eliot 28-31 July 2016

We had an unforgettable weekend at Port Eliot Festival this summer!

Down by the river, the sound of traditional sea shanty singing filled the air in our Fisherman’s Yard, while our series of inspiring workshops, with special guest artists, celebrated the best of our Cornish maritime and artistic heritage.

Amid the buoys, driftwood, agapanthus and grasses, festival goers learnt how to make a whole host of goodies in our Make & Take workshops, including hand painting neckerchiefs, paper flower making, knotted jewellery, screen-printing on tote bags, paper crafts and customising Seasalt Sailor Shirts with nautical designs. Meet our special guest artists:


Sophie Chadwick - joint Seasalt founder and print designer
Sarah Dennis - paper cut artist and illustrator
Anna Roberts & Sam Winterbourne - the creative team behind Seasalt's windows
Figurehead - all female a capella group
Dena O'Brien - printmaker
Kathryn Fowler - Seasalt print designer
Riannon Selcuk - I Make Knots
Emma Spurgin Hussey - actor, playwright, director, and workshop leader.

Passers-by pulled up a chair to play our ‘have a go piano’, tried their hand at a game of quoits, learnt how to finger knit, and when the heat of the day (and a little drizzle!) had passed, relaxed in a deckchair and enjoyed some Tea Time Tales with our storyteller.

What a fantastic weekend we had, full of words, music, food, fashion and flowers, all set in the beautiful grounds of Port Eliot House in St Germans, Cornwall.
