Whitegold Festival

How can I get involved in Whitegold Festival?

Whitegold Festival of Clay aims to encourage as many people as we can to get in touch with their creative side and to join in with the community. We are now in planning for Whitegold 2020 and expecting the upcoming festival to be bigger and better than it has been before.

Get in touch with us if you…

…. are interested in applying to have a stall at the festival – using this to sell or show work, on your own or with others.

… are keen to share something about your practice in a live demonstration.

… want to set up a food stall outside your own shop, or take one of our planned street food pitches for 2020.

…. have a touring outdoor performance or busking set you think we’d be interested in booking.

… have a skill you’d like to share through one of our hands-on workshops.

… would like to give some of your valuable time to help volunteer at the festival.

We are keen to welcome people passionate about clay, crafting and making to come and join the team and act as ambassadors for creativity, supporting workshops, encouraging passers-by to join in and have a go, holding a conversation and listening to responses.  If you would like to support the 2020 festival by becoming a volunteer please let us know

If you are interested in any of the above, or have other thoughts or projects you’d like to bring to the festival, you can contact Cat Radford, the festival producer, by email:
