Elsie & Fleur

Ever wondered what our maker Paul Cadmore does for a day job? We caught up with him earlier this week, read on to find out. 

What is your most treasured possession?

My photo collection, they show the story of our family, our holidays and our home life.

Where is your favourite place to go in the Westcountry?

Gingerbread hill (that’s what we call it) just off Crowcombe Park.

What would people be surprised to learn about you?

People tend to be surprised that I teach Physics.

In a normal week, how much time do you spend crafting?

Depends how much marking I have! Not enough, but I think that will change from October onwards as I try to do it when I can and enjoy the luxury of time to do it.

What do you enjoy most about making?

The comments people make, if they are positive and making things is a contrast to my day job, it is very therapeutic.

Cream first or jam first when you have a cream tea?

Why ruin cream with jam?!

If money was no object, where in the world would you most like to go?

Cage diving with great white sharks off South Africa, followed by Antarctica, Tibet....there is a list if there is no limit!

What is the most important tool to help you when you’re crafting?

Quite often a torch when it is late and I need more antlers for the reindeer herd in November. Then in the other hand are some sharp secateurs.
