Artist Bronwen Buckeridge will lead a walk along the coast with readings from a variety of literary and historical sources.

The walk will involve rough terrain and there are several stiles along the route. Participants should wear suitable footwear and clothing. Please bring a waterproof or similar for sitting on the ground. We won’t be put off by a bit of drizzle, but in the event of extreme rain or wind the walk may be rescheduled or cancelled.

Meet at Rinsey car park.

Bronwen Buckeridge is a CAST studio artist and Falmouth University lecturer. She works with field recording, performative events, installation and text. Recent projects include a live pigeon race, a crochet machine directed by birds and an earthwork made with the assistance of witches.

The walk is part of Water and Stone/Dowr ha Men, a three-day celebration of granite, exploring the geological formation of the stone and its impact on landscape and built heritage, as well as the ways in which it is shaped by human industry and in turn shapes the lives of those who live and work with it. The event begins with a keynote by Dr Ruth Siddall on Friday evening and continues on Saturday with walks, demonstrations and a programme of talks, and on Sunday with more walks and a pigment workshop.

Those booking talk tickets will have the first opportunity to reserve places for the walks on Saturday 14 October and will be contacted individually. Any remaining places will be made available in the week beginning 9 October.

Water and Stone is made possible by the support of Falmouth University, with FEAST, Cornwall Council, Arts Council England, Cornwall Community Foundation and Helston Town Council.
