Spotlight on a Tamar Valley Tourism Member : Cowslip Workshops

Cowslip is a hidden gem situated at the end of a lane, on a small traditional farm, with wonderful views looking towards Launceston Castle.

Set up by Jo Colwill over 25 years ago, her hobby and passion for textiles, traditional quilts and sewing have developed into an exciting textile/craft experience.

Classes are regularly held teaching patchwork, quilting and appliqué as well as a wide variety of other crafts. Jo teaches a lot of the classes herself, but tutors visit from all over the world. The Cowslip shop is a treasure trove of top quality patchwork fabrics and sewing notions as well as stocking a selection of rustic pottery and greeting cards. There is always an abundance of quilts and cushions on display for inspiration.

Cowslip café which looks out over the garden, serves light lunches, Cornish cream teas and delicious home made cakes, using locally sourced produce whenever possible. There is plenty of seating inside and when the weather is fine there are tables in the garden and on the veranda.
