A celebration of modern craftspeople from the South West of England, this gorgeous book from Anya Rice and Katherine Sorrell is a visual feast.  And yes, I do feature. What page I hear you ask? Pages 138 -143 dedicated to Lancaster & Cornish - what an honour!

I loved spending time with photographer Anya Rice and writer Kathrine Sorrel showing them some of my craft, doing some seasonal gorse dyeing and opening up the studio to share the love.

Featuring the work of 25 other makers, Make: Cornwall is a book about the joy of the hand made, the passion and integrity of makers, and the power of a very special place. This sumptuously photographed and elegantly designed hardback book demonstrates the incredible diversity and quality of contemporary craft in the Far West.

Make: Cornwall offers a secret peek into 25 makers' work spaces, their tools and techniques and their making processes, with glorious photos of their finished products and lists of where to see and buy, as well as beautiful portraits of the makers themselves and the landscapes that surround them.
