We are very pleased that St Austell Town Council have pledged further financial support for the Whitegold Festival and in particular for our ongoing programme of work with local schools and communities.

This coming year Parasite Ceramics will be working with local people to design a large scale mural of a Cornish Bee for Biddicks Court, a project which is starting at the festival. In addition we will be working with two schools on ceramic residencies designed support creative activity with clay in curriculum.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our other funders this year Arts Council England, FeastEco-Bos, Imerys, St Austell Printing Company, St Austell BID, Nationwide Print and Cornwall Councillors Sally-Anne Saunders (Bugle),  Malcolm Brown (St Austell Bethel), Sandra Heyward (St Austell Gover), Tom French (St Austell Bay) & Richard Pears (Mount Charles).
