It started with a tweet about love themed Tug of War ropes, with the cornwall-based canvas and rope enthusiasts Lizard Sewing, and we now have a whole mini section of the fair dedicated to the most creative bridal orientated artisans and suppliers in the West Country. We like to call it our Cornish Brides section!
And we don't like to stereotype, but these Cornish lovelies, who are fantastically called The Way Out West collective, really will bring out your inner boho bride, or will be a little haven for any hippy couples pining for some flower power and universal harmony in the big smoke.
And if you don't believe us, just look at some of the exhibitors involved in the Way Out West collective who will be represented on the day, by founders Lizard Sewing who make beautiful yurt awnings and the aforementioned decorative rope work and silk painter and seamstress Things Worth Keeping, below.

Haha, just like to end with Anna Butler of Lizard Sewing and co-founder of the collective emailed to say she likes this post but wants to point out that "many of them do eat steak, Way Out West is hard yet oh so fluffy.' We like!
