Now two years on from the first public workshops at Whitegold Festival in 2018, this short film is made as nearly 11,000 handmade tiles for the first public art commission for St Austell, the Cornish Honey Bee mural, are finally applied to the wall overlooking Biddick’s court.

A message from The Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall: Edward Bolitho OBE on its completion, with SABEF’s chair James Staughton and the artists and volunteers who worked with the community to bring the Cornish Honey Bee into being, and talk about the importance of The Austell Project for the town and for Cornwall.
