Clay Exchange is an exploration of how china clay can connect us to other people and places, now and in the future. We want to not only exchange ideas amongst our own communities but also to connect to new people, new ideas and invigorate our creativity. We want to learn from the most exciting, interesting and cutting edge artists, designers and makers, bringing them to Cornwall from around the world to exchange knowledge and culture.
