Welcome to the Whitegold Project

 

The Whitegold Project is a new initiative set in the heart of Cornwall, in an area famous for China Clay production and renowned for the surrounding sub-tropical gardens.

Developed over the past few years by the St Austell Bay Economic Forum the project is the vision of some dedicated local people bringing together local businesses, the public sector, artists, gardeners and the people living and working in the area. Called Fresh Green Futures it is a vision of St Austell, its Bay and the China Clay country as a place where amazing art, craft and design of all sizes and shapes, temporary and permanent, of clay and about clay, appears in public spaces to intrigue, challenge and delight residents and visitors alike.

The next Whitegold Festival will take place on the 21st September 2019.  Join us to celebrate the clay.

Contact us if you would like to get involved, join our mailing list or keep in touch on social media. We look forward to seeing you soon
