Day at Porthmeor Studio 11 – thanks to Shallal (July 9th 2015)
Shallal are in residence at Porthmeor Studio 11, St.Ives for 3 months and invited us to spend a day there with artist Laura Menzies. We had a very happy day doing pretty much what we usually do at Breadline on Thursdays. We went out for a fantastic curry and salad lunch at the Farmer’s Market in the Guild Hall where we fell into a discussion about who we might like to invite to the group as visiting artists in terms of skills we would like to learn. These seemed to focus on survival skills and included people who could teach us foraging, bodging, weaving with rushes, building shelters, charcoal burning, whittling and creating an earth oven.
