IN THE WALLED GARDEN
Paint a portrait of Salty the dog, help build a giant nest, make a tiny print, hand build big plant pots with clay, or try carving into granite!
Our talented artist team will show you how to engrave a tiny plate to print a label for a matchbox museum or join in a giant garden print. Help pinch potter Hannah Lawrence to make and decorate large plant pots. Artist Alice Ellis-Bray will explore mark-making with inks, seawater and seashells.
CAST studio artist Nicola Bealing will bring her friendly dog Salty to model for a special painting class. Amy Brocklehurst would like your help to construct a nest large enough to sit in, and stonemason Stephane Rouget will demonstrate the right way to hold a chisel and hammer to make your mark on a piece of granite.
Different activities are on offer at each CAST-Off session over the summer. Saturday sessions will be held at the Walled Garden, Penrose, from 29 July to 19 August, and Wednesday sessions will be held at Coronation Gardens in Helston from 2 to 16 August. The final session will take place on Wednesday 23 August at Gunwalloe Beach.
All activities are free. Just drop-in, no booking required. Donations welcome.
Participants of all ages are welcome. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
We won’t be put off by a bit of drizzle and hope you won’t either, but check on the day in case of extreme weather or last-minute changes.
