Friday: The Leach Effect - by Robin Kewell. BOOK NOW.

 'The Leach Effect-St Ives' presented by film-maker Robin Kewell. 

Robin grew up near St Ives (Cornwall UK) and spent most of his life there. This special evening of film and story telling will delve into the amazing history of St Ives and shed some light on why St Ives attracted world renowned artists and potters. Through photographs, short films on the artists studios and a documentary featuring Bernard Leach and his pottery, Robin will bring Cornwall to life. Just about every potter in the West Country spent some time at the Leach Pottery, Titirangi's Len Castle was there in the early 1950's. Q&A session after the films if desired.
