CREATIVE LIVING COUNTRY

An evening with Chloe Grimshaw and Luke White in conversation with the designers and makers of Creative Living Country.

How do we find a place where we can live and work and thrive creatively? In a celebration of creative life in the West Country, design writer Chloe Grimshaw and photographer Luke White, will chat with Jo Pilkington who set up Mad Dogs and Vintage Vans, one of the UK’s best glampsites (according toThe Times) in Herefordshire; and with Lakshmi Bhaskaran, one half of husband-and-wife design team Bark , furniture makers based in Bude, who design everything from surfboards to sideboards – most recently collaborating with Vivienne Westwood at the Salone del Mobile.

‘If you don’t seize the chance, you may never do it and I never take our life here for granted. Even on the greyest of days it’s wonderful watching the fronts roll in from the Black Mountains.’ Jo Pilkington, Mad Dogs and Vintage Vans

‘I love the sense of community in Somerset’ Photographer Matilda Temperley
