The three pages that I wrote about were:
1.The Cornish Miner,
2. their Home Life, and
3. their Work Life.

A Refuge For Bees

(This was written for my work placement at Stranger Collective for an article published on Coca Cola’s Live Positively Collective.)

Bees in the UK are dying at an alarming rate. In the past five years, there has been a 90% loss in their numbers, and experts believe that they could be extinct within the next decade.

One in three beehives are now lifeless due to a lack of wild flowers and safe nesting sites. The bees that are left are having to work twice as hard to keep our planet alive with the vital pollination that this buzzing workforce carry out. Our food, clothes and very survival depend on this pollination, but the bees are dying from exhaustion and they need our help.

A Tap That Doesn’t Like Waste

(This was researched for my work placement at Stranger Collective for an article which was published on Coca Cola’s Live Positively Collective.)

Did you know that we waste six litres of water whilst only using one of them every time we wash our hands?

Last week we saw how salt water could soon be used as a source of power, this week we’ve found a tap that conserves water all by itself. That will come handy when we’ll be needing it to power our houses.

This 1 Liter Limited Tap allows only a single litre of water to be released at a time – that’s enough water to wash your face as well as your hands in the morning.

Good Enough To Eat

(This was researched for my work placement at Stranger Collective for an article published on Coca Cola’s Live Positively Collective.)

We’ve read about jewelry made from unwanted belongings, but how about a table setting made from an accompanying side dish?

The excitement of a picnic when the sun starts to come out can sometimes be scrutinized by the use of plastic cups and plates that are often left behind. Well, we’ve found a couple of fun alternatives with some of the most quirky, ingenious and downright weird examples off the web, from edible implements to a biodegradable picnic set.

Port Eliot Newsletter

(This research was for my work placement at Stranger Collective, some of which was used in a Port Eliot Festival newsletter.)

This week we have interviewed Magnum photographer, Martin Parr, who will be attending Port Eliot in the basement of the main House with his rolling exhibition this year. When Parr’s not in the event line-up himself, or simply at the festival for his own pleasure, he is the author of almost 50 books and has been featured in more than 80 exhibitions worldwide.

Tim Shaw’s ‘The Origin Of The Drummer’

(This was written for my work placement at Stranger Collective)

From a giant figure with antlers, holding its erect penis whilst staring disturbingly into the audiences’ eyes, a larger-than-life sculpture of a drummer is Cornish sculptor, Tim Shaw’s, largest project yet, with the unveiling of the figure being held at Truro’s Lemon Quay next month.

Tim graduated from Falmouth’s College of Art with a first class BA(Hons) Fine Art degree in 1988. After moving to London for two years to work in the famous British sculptor’s house, Tim returned to Cornwall to begin his work on The Drummer.
