In response to current Covid restrictions Clayground Collective have designed an online clay Chough making workshop suitable for all ages and abilities. The project involves participants in simple modelling techniques for creating paper clay birds, sharing chat and fun facts about clay and the history of the chough. The choughs that are made will be planted at the base of the trees on Edible St Austell’s fruit tree trail located in public green spaces throughout the town.
If you like to join them for a 2 hour online Zoom please register using the eventbrite link below.
Clayground Collective are London based artists who are internationally known for working collaboratively to engage communities through clay. As part of the Whitegold International Prize they are working together with Edible St Austell on this project to raise local awareness of Edible St Austell’s fruit tree trail. The trail is one aspect of their activities designed to bring people together using communal green spaces, sharing skills and resources and producing food for the residents of St Austell to enjoy.
Please note participants must live in or near to St Austell. This is because they will need to either collect or receive materials necessary to take part from project organisers. Spaces are limited and booking is necessary.
