Event description
Inclusive contemporary craft and art fair with makers stalls, art exhibition, free and affordable workshops and tea and cake on the lawns...

About this event

We’re so excited to be planning a pop-up Narrative craft and art fair in the real world this year! It's been so long...

Join local makers and artists to see what they’ve been making over lockdown, have a go yourself with affordable taster workshops, enjoy cream teas, lolling on the lawn looking at the sea, and just enjoy a creative day out again…

We’re running it alongside the college’s open day and with the Whitegold Festival in St Austell town centre: they’ll be so much to see and do, with a free bus service to take you up and down the hill.

We’re being careful with spacing and social distancing measures, and there’s plenty of things going on outside: we want everyone to feel welcome and safe and join us for a day of making, painting and seeing high quality contemporary craft work and art. Here’s what’s happening:

• 30 talented local makers and artists available to talk to and sell their work in the a-level centre

• Hour-long, bookable craft skills and art taster workshops for £5 or £10 each

• Drawing Room: as part of the Big Draw festival, join us just to draw, anything you like on a big banner

• Narrative Art Club: Grayson Perry Style exhibition: submit your art to narrativefair@gmail.com to be part of the inclusive exhibition, theme is ‘Tales From the Bay’, chance to win cash prizes, glass trophy and art supplies

• Free craft workshops for teenagers outside with School of Make from 11am to 2pm

• Outdoor cooking on the fire with Nik from Curious School of the Wild

• Plant stall: get veg and flowers from Stu, a local producer

• Homemade cakes and cream teas: have a picnic on a blanket on the lawn and enjoy the sea views…

It's free entry, just turn up! But if you'd like to make a donation we're supporting Daisy Dukes CIC who help homeless people in St Austell and School of Make who provide free craft workshops for teenagers...

There’s loads of space for kids to run around and play, free parking, plenty of toilets and no-fuss disabled access. They’ll be dance, food and music demos from the college courses too so it promises to be a fun day out, where everyone is welcome to join in and enjoy making and art…see you there!
