Prehistoric Pottery workshop on the Beach

Words by Nikki Hotchin

Come and learn how to make prehistoric pottery on the beach! 

As part of Robin Sullivan’s latest community project, And Everything And Nothing Has Changed, on the 28th of August Robin will be at Par Beach (the side by the rocks) between 10am – noon and 2pm – 4pm offering the opportunity to learn how to make a small prehistoric pottery bowl for free! 

(If the weather is bad this will be up at the Temporary Art Space by the Sky Tip.) 

These bowls will then be fired at the Temporary Art Space by Robin and will be used in a small ceremony at the unveiling of the new Standing Standing Sculpture.  

These ceremonial bowls will be used to gather offerings, small objects from the landscape used to give thanks and blessings.  You are invited to the ceremony in early September where you can collect your finished bowl. 

All events within the programme are free, this event is a drop in workshop but please register you interest by emailing Robin or DM them on instagram. For more information on this event and how you can get involved in the rest of programme go to WWW.ROBINJAMESSULLIVAN.COM or email Robin on

‘And Everything And Nothing Has Changed’ has been made possible with generous support, help and funding from; Austell Project, the Coastal Communities Fund, Creative Civic Change, Arts Council England, Cornwall Heritage Trust, Eco-bos, Imerys, FEAST, Cornwall College and Cultivator Cornwall.
