Cornwall campsite to revive lost skill of crab pot making

5f8427b2-cc6d-46ba-a820-ea312c9b7c6d
The lost skill of crab pot making will return to the Roseland peninsula, as part of an arts project at Treloan Campsite near Portscatho.

'Caravanserai' is the brainchild of Falmouth-based artists Annie Lovejoy and Mac Dunlop and is based at Treloan Coastal Holidays. The project began with starting a garden and establishing a residency space which provides food, flora and a live/work space for people interested in developing social and environmental activities in response to being at Treloan.

A workshop has been held to reintroduce the lost skill of crab pot making with former artist-in-residence Greg Humphries and MA Art and Environment students from Falmouth university. Greg first worked with Caravanserai  in 2009 where he regenerated a local willow coppice. He and local resident Allan Collins set out to learn the craft of crab pot making and found expert John Hurrell of Port Loe to teach them. Now, they will work with Si and Cat Holman from the Polscatho-based fishing project 'Teach a Man to Fish' to reinstate the skill in the village.

Visit Treloan Coastal Holidays for more information on the park and click here for more details about Caravanserai.
