Children from local primary schools will have the opportunity to work with clay and explore the making of pottery for cooking and storage in Neolithic times. The day-long workshops begin with a visit to the Museum of Cornish Life to see examples of locally-found gabbroic pottery. The children will then move back to CAST’s learning studio, where they can build and decorate their own ‘Neolithic’ coil pots. Each group will also spend time in the ceramics studio and make their own small pinch-pots or animals from gabbroic clay.

If your school would be interested in taking part in workshops at CAST, please contact Lucy Grant at [email protected].

These special workshops are made possible by a Heritage Lottery fund grant. They are part of CAST’s ongoing schools programmes which are supported by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
