Cornish Conservation

Conservation must be more than a convenient slogan.

As part of Mel’s passion and activism for the environment Alchemy Tiles supports local Cornish Conservation projects by designing Bespoke Collections for each cause. All profits from each sale are donated the projects every quarter. New collections for local ocean based conservation projects are currently being designed and will be launched at her next solo exhibition in August 2022.
