March opening hours: Tues to Sat 10.30am to 4.30pm.
Annie of Creations from the Yurt is an avid lover of nature and has always been fascinated by the different forms and symmetry found within the beautiful wild plants that inhabit our Cornish countryside. As a child growing up in Cornwall she spent endless hours making dens in hedgerows and tree houses in her local oak tree.
She completed a Foundation Year in Fine Art at Falmouth University but, after spending some time in Africa volunteering for a charity with her family, she decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps and trained as a nurse. Currently still working part-time as a nurse, Annie has also started to follow her creative passions more.
All Creations from the Yurt are made in Annie’s yurt studio near Falmouth using plants picked from the surrounding hedgerows. She explores creating beautiful plant impressions through a process called Cyanotype printing, also known as Blueprinting or sun prints, a traditional photographic process first discovered in 1842.
