Our Game Terracotta Figures
Our Game is a huge community project celebrating Ashbourne’s Shrovetide football game and will be on display in St Oswald’s Church throughout the festival. Created by Sarah Heaton and Helen Cammiss of The Clayrooms pottery in Ashbourne and hundreds of local children and adults at a series of organised school visits and pop-up workshops in town, this installation of around 5000 small terracotta figures represents the supporters and players. Forget the Terracotta Warriors, this unique art installation is the real ‘must see’ and will be open from 16 June to mid September in St Oswald’s Church, Ashbourne.
The delivery of this project represents the culmination of a very successful partnership between the Clayrooms and Ashbourne Arts and is a highlight of this year’s festival.
One of the many pop-up workshops was hosted in March by our local branch of Costa Coffee, use the link below to see what happened on the day.
