Cape Cornwall Art and Craft Exhibition in aid of Cancer Research 2016Skip to main navigation list
Cape Cornwall Art and Crafts exhibition is a fantastic exhibition which is held at Cape Cornwall School in St Just. The Cape Cornwall Art and Crafts Exhibition, St Just Cornwall, is held in aid of Cancer Research and is usually held for just over 2 weeks in August. For 2015 the St Just Exhibition will run from Wednesday 3rd to Friday 19th August 2016 with the preview evening on 4th August.
In 2014 the event raised £28,000, bringing the total the St Just Cancer Research branch has raised to date with their various fundraising activities to three quarter of a million pounds! A staggering amount for such a small community.
There is a reasonable entry fee of £1.00 for adults and 50p for children (differs on preview evening) in aid of Cancer Research, refreshments and free parking (more free parking is also available in the centre of St Just.)
The Cape Cornwall Art and Crafts Exhibition is made up of three large rooms filled with tables full of local Cornish Crafts, there is a huge variety of art and crafts for sale. A percentage of all sales goes towards Cancer Research, in addition to a submission fee paid by all exhibitors. The variety of products is hugh and includes oil paintings, ceramics, jewellery - beads and silver, wood craft including beautiful turned pieces and carvings, photographs, and a variety of other items including some beautiful handmade rugs.
There are also cloth items such as scarves and children's clothes. One of my favourites is the handbags made from old pantomime costumes.
This St Just Art and Craft Exhibition is definitely worth a visit! You could even start shopping for Christmas early!
