Adult Bread and Art Workshop – Rising, Together

18 May 2024

Join artist Issam Kourbaj for a workshop to explore the practice of bread-making. We will open a reflective and discursive space to knead and fold in embodied memories and inherited tales around bread. The Arabic word for bread is ‘Aish’, which also means ‘life’ and ‘to live’. These will be key themes that we explore in this workshop.

During the session participants will:

Enjoy an introduction to Issam Kourbaj: Urgent Archive, the current exhibition at Kettle’s Yard with artist Issam Kourbaj

Create a bread stamp with artist Issam Kourbaj

Use your stamp to emboss and make flat-breads with local baker Alison McTaggart of BreadonaBike

Share your own bread recipes and their significance with other participants

Come together to reflect on the memories and tales embedded in bread

Delivered in partnership with the Syrian Arts & Cultural Festival.

Allergen advice: This workshop will be using wholegrain flours and therefore not suitable for people with gluten allergies.
