    Is it such a shame that I am busy on the 6th! This sounds fantastic. I am currently looking into building a renewable energy powered studio space to make clothes and launch a designed and made in Cornwall clothing line. This would have been really informative. Will there be another event like this?
    Kind Regards, Zara Hall
