Dates for 2019 to be announced!


A tonne of raw modelling clay will be dropped off in Blackburn by the Clayground Collective in this FREE, drop-in event, suitable for all ages.

Help us fashion Blackburn’s biggest ever communal sculpture, capturing memories of your first ever makes. Will you recreate your first ever sandcastle, a mud pie or a family portrait?


Contribute your memories to this extra-special festival event!

Clayground is kindly sponsored by our friends at Darwen Terracotta and Potclays
