IN THE WALLED GARDEN
Print with fruit and veg, construct with wood, paint a portrait, carve into stone, create charm ribbons and plant seeds.
Print with fruit and veg to create a giant garden picture, or make something or someone special from wood using a hammer and nails. The National Trust ‘Garden Gang’ will be on hand to introduce you to some of the plants in the garden and you can design your own colourful seed packet to take home. Or you can thread clay beads with other collected objects to make a charm necklace, bracelet or pin.
Alice Ellis-Bray will guide a portrait painting session, and 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.
