Flookan is a community ceramics hub providing facilities to local ceramicists and artists working with clay, as well as workshops, courses and community projects.

Set in the beautiful historic Market House at the centre of St Austell, the capital of Cornwall’s Clay Country, Flookan aims to excite people about ceramics both as a creative medium and as something with deep links to the culture, history, and industry of the local area.

“Flookan was born out of wanting somewhere local where I could make ceramics, connect with others and work in a collaborative and community focused way”.
