For Robin Sullivans latest project ‘And Everything And Nothing Has Changed’, Robin has been working with the local community for the last year exploring the china clay area’s 6000 year history. This summer Robin has been running archaeological field trips, stone circle workshops, performance evenings in collaboration with Covid and Beyond community arts group, building a large wood fired kiln with the help of cornwall college students and running ceramic workshops.
As the projects draws to a close Robin is building a huge 2.5meter high Ceramic Standing Stone. Over the week of the 16th of August Robin will be hosting Open Studios at the Temporary Art Space.
During the week you can meet Robin and hear about the project, learn about the processes involved in making natural glazes, see the enormous Petal Kiln, designed by Andres Allik… alongside this you will have the opportunity to help build the standing stone!
All events within the programme are free but limited in capacity. 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
