Sculptures from the sea

Hot off the wracks, our latest news, views and products.

Having had a look at the skies this week, we’ve been fascinated by the array of pastels and hues that would make painting them hard. Especially when the only ingredients are seaweed! Speaking of sculptures from the sea, we’ve been pleased to see Palaver Maven use a quirky exhibition space to bring literacy to life. We’re thinking about using this amazing space in Bristol to exhibit our things, so watch this space…
