Workshop on A Clay Sailing Barge at Wheal Martyn

Posted in Events by Lauren Webb on 3rd March 2023

Do you fancy doing something a bit different this Easter holidays?

Inspired by the china clay mining industry – get crafty on Good Friday and make your own clay worker on an authentic clay ship.

Lady Daphne, moored in Charlestown, is a historic Thames sailing barge and carried china clay from 1923 to 1932.

Using historical images and films of the china clay industry, you will learn how to make your own bal maiden or kettle boy out of air drying clay. Take your creation home with you afterwards as a memento!

All ages welcome. Children to be accompanied by an adult.

£5 per participant.

7 April 2023, 10am until 4pm (book a 1 hour workshop slot)
