Friday, December 10th, 2010

Extremely busy at the moment with some very interesting commissions in the pipeline for the new year.

Just wanted to give a heads up, as the Falmouth Poly is hosting Craftpoint in the run up to Christmas. It started on 1st December and finishes on Christmas Eve.

You can purchase gifts from as little as a few pounds upwards, or commission a designer maker to produce something that you can put your own stamp on and cherish forever.

Craftpoint was a big success!!!

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010



Craftpoint was a real success at the weekend, it was a lot of hard work putting it together, but well worth it. We had over two hundred people attending the 3 day event  even though the weather was  poor, particularly on Sunday which in actual fact was our busiest day with more than 100 visitors. Everybody involved sold something so that was a very positive outcome too.


We had visitors  from Germany, Holland and Spain as well as from all over the UK, however most were from Cornwall which was really good to know that we had local support. We got a mention on BBC Radio Cornwall from the one and only Freddy Zapp and a feature in the Cornishman which helped in getting people to us. The studio and workshop is  a little off of the beaten track and we were still hard to find even with all the posters and signage which was put up around the town!


The designer makers and artists taking part included Olivia Cassells, Carole Allen, Julie Murdoch George, David Briggs, Maxine Symons, Sue Kelly, Lynda Jewell, David Mckinstry, Naomi Singer, Charlotte Tangye, Cat Rowe, Sarah Nelson, Chloe Williams, Marie Louise Denny, Lincoln Kirby BellLeslie Plumridge, Alison Hughes, Robert Jones, Sarah Jane Stone, Nicky Mills, Stephen Fuller, Carl Goodman and of course me Nicholas Langan.

A big thank you to all who took part without your support this would not have been possible.

Anyway, because of the overwhelming support by both customers and craftspeople we are planning the next event already, Carole Lomas of New Metaphor will be finding a new venue in the near future, we will keep you posted.


A big thank you to all that came and supported us over the weekend. We hope that you can make the next Craftpoint Pop-Up shop?

Craftpoint is a really new and exciting event taking place at the Journeyman Furniture studio and gallery from Friday 30th July to Sunday 1st August 2010. The event will be open daily from 10am – 6pm.

Craftpoint – Contemporary lifestyle from designer makers will be held over three days and is a brand new and intriguing way to shop in Cornwall.

What is so captivating about Craftpoint is that it is a pop up shop. The point behind Craftpoint is to showcase the best work of local contemporary craftspeople and designer makers in a series of venues, on different dates across the county throughout the year.

At Craftpoint there will be much to chose from including textiles, prints, jewellery, ceramics, gifts, wood, glass, art and furniture. Taking part will be JMG ceramics, Carole Allen Jewellery, Olivia Cassells, Maxine Symons, Cat Rowe and of course Nicholas Langan! Plus many more.

Please do come along and support this fascinating new experience.
