Welcome to Mayes Creative
Mayes Creative engages the communities of Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and beyond in creative experiences to explore their world through heritage, science, technology and the environment. We want to discover new ways of thinking and doing that are fun and surprising, encouraging inspiration and broadening horizons.
Current events and activities
We are very excited to have collaborated with Cheryl Straffon and Meyn Mamvro to bring together over 30 years of solar inspired articles. The sites in Cornwall with solar links range from the Neolithic to the Iron Age and it is astounding to think that people have followed the
solar cycle for over 4000 years. As always, a huge thankyou to our funders and supporters, especially National Lottery players who have provided much of the funding of this project through Heritage lottery Fund and Arts Council England. Thanks also to Feast and Cornwall Council for additional support. We have now printed a physical booklet - click here for details of our online launch event!
