Get creative with our February Half Term Activities

Pay a visit to Wheal Martyn this February half term and get creative with pottery painting and bug house decorating!

Pop in between 10.30am – 3.30pm on Monday 17th – Tuesday 18th February and discover the beautiful creations artists make out of Cornish china clay. Feeling inspired? Why not paint your own ceramic to take home with you? From bird feeders to tea lights, there will be something to spark your imagination.

If you love exploring nature and helping to protect the environment, drop in from Wednesday 19 – Thursday 20th February and decorate your own bug house for your garden. You can personalise a little home that all the bugs in your garden will appreciate!

Nikita Brown, Exhibition and Engagement Officer at Wheal Martyn said, ‘This year we are celebrating 200 years of mining at Wheal Martyn and have an action-packed programme to celebrate. All the family can get involved in the fun this February half term and we hope to see you at one of our hands-on activities.’

If you live in Cornwall, gain admission for a discounted rate (£7.50 per adult and £5.00 per child) and return for free all year, with the Cornwall Residents’ Pass, available until 31 March 2020. 2020 marks 200 years of mining at Wheal Martyn, and there will be lots of exciting activities to return for – starting with February half term!

These activities have been developed as part of our Clay Works project with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Arts Council England and a range of other organisations including support from Imerys Minerals Ltd.

We welcome dogs, and have a café and gift shop, which are free to enter. For more information, click here, call 01726 850362 or email
