CornCCoB days 3-14! (first published 15/4/2013)
After the previous two blog posts I became quite busy, and then a few days later moved into a holiday cottage with no wifi. So although I would have loved to update the blog, I was no longer able to. A nice little touch during a research trip all about the value of the web! Anyway, I thought I’d provide a short summary here of the fieldwork. On day 3 I found myself in Redruth, to speak with various artists working from studios in a fantastic space called Krowji: http://www.krowji.co.uk Krowji is an old school building (plus out buildings) which now provides affordable studio space for local artists and craftspeople. It’s an incredibly inspiring place with a very colourful cafe – I ended up here on three separate occasions and I think it’s fair to say it has injecting some much needed vibrancy into a depressed (but beautiful) town which suffered with the decline of the local mining industry.
I got such a range of perspectives from the various people I spoke to here
