2021 Programme Launch

With Clayhill Arts

5 March

Our launch event will be a representation of our 2021 educational programme, as well as the Clayhill Arts aims and values and environmental outlook. There will be several online areas representing our various spaces where we will be streaming creative demos, live interviews and group discussions as well showcasing work from our tutors, including a highlight from our new artist-in-residence.
The theme for this year’s event is ‘Physical/Digital‘, which is our wider focus for the year ahead. As a result of the Coronavirus crisis, and the general acceleration of the digital world, we want to examine the effects of this profound change on the creative industries – both the positives we have taken from this time, and what we need to get back to. We recognise the growing need for contemporary digital skills within the art and craft sectors, as well as that equally important need to reconnect with the handmade and face-to-face learning, so we have made that part of our primary goals for next year’s educational offering. Our launch event will be a chance to further explore these ideas with our wider network, as well as celebrate some of the amazing ways creativity has helped us through this crisis.

We’re currently putting the plans together for this event and there will be more information available soon. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear about it!

Working with Deborah and Michael was such a pleasure. They understood the project from the beginning, what the needs of the makers and our audiences would be, and acted as thoughtful ambassadors for the project when we were not able to be there. Every aspect of the exhibition and events was facilitated in such a calm and confident manner, which made my job of coordinating a group of artists so much easier! The whole event became a pivotal moment for the project, bringing people together in a way I could never have anticipated, and which has altered my thinking about the future of the project. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.


The weekend I spent at Clayhill Arts was a very welcome change of scenery to my otherwise urban setting. I felt calmed yet invigorated by the surroundings, and the accommodation was beautifully tasteful and very homely. The main space is wonderfully considered and very versatile - an ideal space for creativity and dynamic discussion. I left on the Sunday feeling energised and inspired by the experience of staying at Clayhill.


As a singer it has been one of the best spaces to sing in with generous reverberation and acoustics.  It is a space which complemented the type of instruments I was working with and the songs.


I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed being at your venue. It is a lovely and inspiring artistic space. The food was fantastic, homely yet unusual. I really enjoyed the day.


As an artist retreat, the venue at Clayhill Arts provided a warm and welcoming environment, allowing a safe and constructive space where individuals creative needs can be met. 


We were lucky enough to be able to take over the whole venue for a weekend, using the Granary as our base for experimentation, discussion and shared learning. The informality of the accommodation, and the relaxed surroundings, put everyone at ease and offered a space where cooperation and encouragement evolved naturally.


Everything was wonderful! This is a beautiful place. Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay.


Clayhill feels remote which is great but it also is close to Cannington which has everything, so supplies can be bought without travelling a great distance...I also really enjoyed that it is still a working farm, because it feels productive and there is such a lot of life around us which is very inspiring
