Wednesday…with a Weekend Workshop

March 22, 2017

Filed Under : Arrangements - colour - Cornwall - Spring - texture - trips - workshops

This weekend I hosted a bespoke workshop in Cornwall and made sure I packed in as much creative inspiration into 2 days as I could.

I wanted to highlight how lots of different elements influence my table compositions; texture, colour, atmosphere and weather, as well as sharing some of my favourite places in the South of Cornwall.

We took in texture in Newlyn,  Mousehole and Tremenheere, colours in Penzance and nearby daffodil fields, and atmosphere in a local pub and The Leach Pottery and also managed to find time to create some compositions.

Below is a visual journey of our weekend…

I tried so hard to get these ‘Weekly Snaps’ up here on Sunday evening at the same time as my Steller Story, but for some reason my blog is proving a bit of a nightmare re uploading images at the moment, so these images have taken about 2 days to upload after re loading and re loading as they just keep freezing mid import…maybe it’s because I’m away from home or something, but here they are now!

image imageThese images are basically a peep into life ‘around’ the table; things I see and how they might influence what I do and I try to make one of these stories each Sunday on Steller…you can see the Steller version here and the ‘Rescuing Dahlias’ Steller story here

 

Sunday…with Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens

August 16, 2015

Filed Under : Cornwall - Summer - trips

imageI’ve been to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens before, but last time James Turrell’s Skyspace room   and the camera obscura were closed…today they were open and were an amazing experience and treat which we shared with Emma( @ sewrecycled ) and her boys…image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image The camera obscura was at the end of a little path and was a completely unexpected, amazing wonder!!

The images it produced in the cabin were brilliant…image image image image image image image image image the garden has lots of different sculpture dotted around the gardens…image image image image as well as beautiful trees, tranquil woodland paths and really inspired planting…imageThe cafe has incredible food as well, and the plant nursery is really reasonably priced…Tremenheere is definitely worth a visit if you’re in Cornwall over the Summer…or even out of season!
