  • Stephane Rouget's stone bashing demonstration, CAST-Off 2020 1/2
  • Stone carving with Stephane Rouget, CAST-Off 2021 2/2

CAST-Off Saturday 13 August

Stone carving, felt pouch making and wild pigment painting.

Join the CAST team in the walled garden where stonemason Stephane Rouget will be demonstrating stone carving. You can have a go at making a pouch using felt and discover the many different ways to make pigments and paint with a range of natural materials.

There’s more to come every Saturday, including brush making, serpentine polishing, and cyanotype photography.

All the activities are free and offered on a drop-in basis, no booking required. Donations welcome.

We won’t be put off by a bit of drizzle and hope you won’t either, but check on the day in case of extreme weather or last-minute changes.

This summer, for the first time, CAST is also taking its programme of creative adventures out to the Lizard peninsula. These take place each Wednesday from 3 to 24 August. For more information click here.

CAST-Off and CAST-Away are made possible by the generous support of The National Lottery Community Fund, FEAST, the Garcia Family Foundation and Helston Town Council.
