Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Creative Kernow

Bettina Holland

We are all in contact with materials every moment of our lives and yet how much do we really know and understand of their intrinsic value? My current body of work is focused around textiles and mark making with a particular emphasis on fleeces, wool and natural dyeing. In a world which seems ever more concerned with faster production processes my work attempts to foreground materials which are often overlooked, discarded or considered to be of little worth.

My work is influenced by the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi and the consideration that we should perhaps adapt our lives to the natural seasons and what they have to offer us as opposed to the adaptation of our lives to the world of machines and technology.
