Frysian artist Aukje Schaafsma will work in the seaside town of Falmouth on the south coast of West Cornwall. Her studio being a few meters away from a tidal estuary we have invited her to work on the beach and with the tides, as well as with people and language. Golden Tree will introduce her to a wide range of people: Cornish speakers, local artists, makers and performers, choirs, people with great stories… After a hearty Cornish welcome from the company, we’ll lend her a wetsuit and a bike, and she’ll soon feel at home in the sea and on the shore.
