CAST-Off Saturday 28 August

Cyanotypes, clay animals, fish kites and prizes. 

On the final day of CAST-Off, find your way to the walled garden at Penrose for one last chance to join in our artist-led activities.

Make your own clay creature with Baya Benzing or follow Lucy Grant’s instructions to create a fish kite that you could fly on Loe Bar. Artist Stuart Robinson will show you how to create your own cyanotype prints using the power of sunlight.

There will also be small prizes for children who have completed lots of tasks on the CAST-Off map.

Artist Ben Sanderson will be in his popular Den, in a dell in the woodland near the Bulwark estate, where there’ll be den making and rope knotting, as well as activities using natural materials. Follow signs from the Fairground car park along Whitehill Terrace (A394) to find the path.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s CAST-Off programme. We should love to have your feedback and would be very grateful for any donations.

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

The CAST-Off programme is supported by the Garcia Family Foundation, with generous assistance from Helston Town Council, Little Parc Owles Trust, FEAST and Falmouth University.
