Skills Development: Cornish / Kernewek for Your Business

More companies and events are using Kernewek, the Cornish language, in their branding and marketing. Come to this session to find out how you can use Cornish on your website or products – whether this is just a few words or going fully bilingual.

Mark Trevethan, the Cornish Language Lead at Cornwall Council, will show different options for using Kernewek, tell you about the various resources and help that are available, and outline how using Cornish benefits your business as well as the Cornish Language agenda.

From an ‘it makes sense for business’ perspective, we are delighted to welcome Chris Knight from St Austell Brewery (and his samples, especially his samples) who will be there to talk about how this international Cornish family business uses Cornish language in their products:

Korev – one of their best sellers – what does ‘Korev’ mean? It’s the Cornish word for ‘Beer’. Simple. Effective.

Where: Krowji, Redruth
When: Thursday 14th December, 10am – 2pm
Cost: Free, with a refundable £10 booking deposit.

A tasty lunch will be provided – please let us know of any dietary requirements by Thursday 7th December by emailing
