Clay Feast

Tradition and Innovation

30th October – 2nd November 2019 | Farnham Pottery

Clay Feast, brilliantly organised by WSP tutor Julia Quigley, aimed to play with the ambiguity of the words with a topsy-turvy event. It was a marvelous opportunity for a wide and diverse audience to explore the relationship between clay and food through hands on workshops making clay ‘food’, cooking in clay and preparing an ‘edible’ feast.

Ooops! Julia seems to have forgotten that pie is not real……

Heritage, history and ritual all stitched together is this wonderful community event.

Clay Feast reignited a once yearly tradition when clay diggers were paid and feasted at Farnham Castle.
