Wheal Kitty

Late Winter, Cornwall. As we set our sights on a journey of reconnection through 2019 we start with those closest to us: our community at Wheal Kitty. Clifftop perched, windows that open towards the Atlantic, chimneys set against the skyline: over the last decade the abandoned factories and mine buildings of Wheal Kitty have whirred back to life: a regenerated hive of industry, innovation and connectivity. We explore the people and environment we call home as a backdrop to our latest range.

In summer 2017, events operator Woodfired Canteen set up base at Wheal Kitty. Throwing their doors open in November as a warm and welcoming space where people sit at a long table, share stories and connect over honest food cooked straight from the heart...
