Yesterday a group of us piled into Jolly Roger’s minivan and set off for an epic tour of some of Cornwall Open Studios most talented artists’ studios.

We had a nice lunch break at the Logan Rock Inn in Treen, before continuing with the rest of our tour. In the afternoon, we went to the studios of Ravenna Montcreif, Paul Lewin, Charlie Lewin and Amanda Richardson.

We were all so impressed with the paintings, textiles, photography and sculptures we saw, but what was best was the very special opportunity to talk to the artists in their own studios, learning how and why they do what they do.
