We are now formally set up as a Community Interest Company! Very exciting for us and on to the next stage – entering the world of rocket science again after thinking it wasn’t!! But is all good and we continue to develop what we do.
There is no doubt in my mind that creative process is alive and kicking in the workshops. Bread making continues to deliver fun and relief for many of the people we encounter on our travels.
Bravo to Sam and Tanya at the Insight cafe in Brierley Hill, Dudley last week. We were so pleased they took part and is very exciting what one can do with a pool table and a baked potato oven!! Who needs fancy kitchens… well we do at some stage! But is a treat to know that you can have the simplest of equipment and makes me think maybe there is an opening at all the pubs in the area!! I jest…. But a mobile oven is on the wish list!!
We are having a good time working with the lovely people at the Disability Support Centre in Dudley. Is lovely to have enthusiastic bread makers and every loaf and roll has it’s own identity and sound!! It proves greatly to me the theraputic elements we are working with and what bread making can do to develop collective and communication…. it is a rich tool indeed.
As ever this is a case of who educates the educator and I feel part of the team learning together… Bread has it’s own agenda and we learn enormous patience!! Baking times…etc!!
Hi, Sarah and Lucy are Bread2share, we have worked together over three years baking bread for our local community. Lucy learned her trade at Loch Arthur, part of a Camphill Community and has taught Sarah a great deal!
Together we hope to share the process of bread making with many people who we think would benefit. It is a restorative and grounding activity. One of community and sharing.
We have just started baking again, in practice for our first workshops… it has been alot of fun, remembering what it is to do the kitchen dance, moving carefully around one another in the small kitchen… having quiet mixing and kneading sessions and enjoying making the smiling faces on our dough dolls. Here are some images from our day…
