Cornish Festival of Culture
Around 100 people came along to Saltash College's Cornish Festival of Culture on Saturday, to join in the fun and festivities that marked the beginning of Adult Learners' Week.
The pasty-making workshop was particularly popular, with Hillary Fedrick, Sue Chalkey and Joy Welsh providing expert and entertaining guidance about how to make the perfect pasty.
Cornish storyteller, Jo Tagney told some local stories which enchanted young and old alike. Her tales included the story of Giant Tavey and Tamara the fairy, as well as the tale of old Bucca, the sea dog from Lamorna. She played the penny whistle, and the younger members of the audience were able to join in and become part of the story too.
Other classes that went on throughout the day were Willow Craft, Cornish Archaeology, Needlecraft, Pottery, Painting, Navigation, Soft Furnishings, Interior Design, Fitness, Maths and Pencils Pastels & Charcoal. A Capella singers, Kescana, Noze Looan dancers and the Celtic band Caracana entertained people in the afternoon, after everyone had enjoyed a lunch of Cornish pasties (from Purdy's) and cream teas (the cream was donated by Rodda's creamery, Scorrier and the jam was donated by the Saltash Co-op).
