Cobnuts was founded in 2017 by Susie Jenkins, Simon Peecock and Florence Peecock to build bridges between the art world and the natural world.

Using their backgrounds in community workshops, art, youth work and ceramics they have spun a web between themselves, community groups and conservation body’s.

Armed with 4 small grants they ventured out into the wild, holding clay and cob workshops where people could get creative and build artworks for the benefit of their native wildlife.

2019: Cobnuts expanded to include Emily Baverstock (natural fabric dying and weaving) Catherine Herbert (lidar and digital map making).

Cobnuts introduced conservation to craft with 4YOUth Club nature based activities and the Conservation & Craft Club.

2023: Cobnuts Co-operative joined forces with Brightlingsea Nature Network and many other local groups to run a town-wide Nature Recovery Project in their home town of Brightlingsea in Essex
