Creative Workshops for Clay Town: St Austell Bay and Beyond

As part of developing public art plans for Clay Town we would love you to join us and award winning Parasite Ceramics in creating a new public artwork – building a living wall of clay as we share ideas for future public art and creative projects in St Austell, the Bay and Clay Country.

Parasite are well known for making site-specific ceramic artworks and unique limited edition bone china products, they’ve been commissioned by the Crafts Council, the Wellcome Trust, the British Museum and our friends at the British Ceramic Biennial in Stoke.

  • Event One: Saturday 27th January, 12-3pm, South Square, White River Place, St Austell, PL25 5AZ
  • Event Two: Sunday 28th January, 11-3pm, Wheal Martyn Museum, Carthew, PL26 8XG

These workshops are open to all so share this invite with your networks, bring your friends and family – all ages welcome! Just drop in, no need to RSVP.

PUBLIC ART SURVEY: If you can’t make it to these workshops, and even if you can, we’d also be really grateful if you could please take 5 minutes to fill in our short survey about public art in the area with your ideas for the future. Just click on the link:

This project is part of developing a public art action plan for Clay Town – a vision for a creative future covering the regeneration area of St Austell town, St Austell Bay and the China Clay villages. Clay Town aims to celebrate the heritage and local culture of china clay and use creativity to make it a big part of its future, part of making a better place to live, work and visit. Read the full vision here
