Tales of Oshi, the Cornish Sea Sprite

Only those fortunate enough to know the magic rhyme can see this curious Cornish sea sprite – the rest of the time she’s invisible. So keep an eye out for the letters she casts adrift as these hold the key to our little Oshi.

This Easter join us for an online trail, crafting fun and live story time with Oshi herself.

Oshi Online Trail

Available online from Friday 2 April

Step inside the Museum from your home and meet our Curator, Dr Morwenna Morvoren. In her cluttered cupboard, hidden at the back of a shelf, she’s unearthed a beautiful gleaming seashell and a strange little poem. What are they doing here?

Through the magic of the sea and the power of words, our Curator brings Oshi, a friendly sea sprite out of her restful slumber. Discover what happens when Oshi wakes up and finds herself in the Curator’s world, full of intriguing, strange and unusual objects…
