The lost skill of crab pot making will return to the Roseland peninsula, as part of an arts project at Treloan Campsite near Portscatho.

“Caravanserai” is the brainchild of Falmouth-based artists Annie Lovejoy, who is completing at PhD at University College Falmouth and Mac Dunlop, who organises Treloan's fireside events.

The aim of the project is to encourage a responsible approach to tourism through creative activities that celebrate the local environment and culture.

A workshop has been held to reintroduce the lost skill of crab-pot making with former artist-in-residence Greg Humphries and MA Art and Environment students from the university.

Greg first worked with Caravanserai on an arts placement in 2009 where he regenerated a local willow coppice. He and local resident Allan Collins set out to learn the craft of crab pot making and found expert John Hurrell of Port Loe to teach them.

Now, they will work with Si and Cat Holman from the Polscatho-based fishing project “Teach a Man to Fish” to reinstate the skill in the village.
