This lovely little booklet was conceived and edited by two Exeter University MA students, Emma Easy and Paul Tucker. It includes a selection of stories, interviews and poems connected with Porthmeor Studios and the renovation project in 2012.
They researched the history of Porthmeor Studios in celebration of its renovation, and the resulting booklet is a way of impressing its character. It focuses on those who have worked in it or were involved in the renovation – four voices deeply affected by what the building was, is and will be. They also approached talented local poets, whose poetry shows how the building evokes a creative response from visitors as well as the resident artists. Finally they found a gifted local illustrator, Rebecca Jones, whose images allow this organic, evolving space to breathe through her pen and brush strokes.
