Clayground Summer Events
Clayground’s getting busy over the next few months with walks, talks and events. If you want to get stuck into raw clay, find ceramic sherds on the foreshore or learn more about why hand skills matter way beyond making a pot, then consult your diary now. Some events are free, others need to be booked.
