Corinne d'Arboussier Carr - Knitwear Designer-Maker
Corinne Carr was born and raised in the centre of Paris. It was there that her grandmother first taught her to knit and purl as a young child. It was a hobby that alllowed her to explore her creativity, flair for design and love of colour. She was making her own clothes and jewellery by the time she was a teenager.
While enrolled at the Sorbonne, Corinne came to Cornwall as a assistant language teacher and settled permanently in West Penwith as she fell in love with the region instantly. She taught French for many years at Penwith College and at her cottage in the evenings. In her spare time she made jumpers, hats and scarves for herself and her two young sons which inevitably led to a gallery owner in Truro admiring her designs and commissioning an order. Corinne has never looked back. [More]
