Polish Rose Petal Jam

If you are lucky enough to have rose bushes in your garden that flowers abundantly I have found the most marvellous and easy way to preserve the petals.

Its the Polish way of making rose petal jam which involves no cooking and is really quick.

Gather and wash your petals, put in the blender with sugar and mix until the sugar is the colour of the petals. You can mix until the petals are completely blended and smooth, or leave it chunky so that there is the occasional petal in the mix.

The batch I made is still crystallised (rather than syrupy) and perfect to sprinkle on top of fruit salad and home made yogurt. Yum!

Day dreaming?


gathering inspiration for my next project?

Either way, I have been spending a lot of time looking at skies and admiring the cloud formations in our wide open skies.

Reminiscing: Story of Stratford art project

I was reminded the other day of one of my projects I implemented whilst in London working at Westfield Shoppingtowns Ltd as their inaugural Public Art Coordinator.

The project was called The Story of Stratford a two year art project to document the progress of the Stratford City development (the site adjacent to the 2012 Olympics). British artist who lives in the East End Helen Marshall, creatively lead the project working with participants from local schools. It was managed by A New Direction, an independent not for profit organisation which advocates for and facilitates creative learning, by connecting young people and schools with creative practitioners and organisations.

It documents the progress of the Stratford City development, from a building site in 2009 to an operational retail centre upon its opening in 2011 and the project explored how the history and regeneration of Stratford will change the lives of the students and their families.

Importantly the project enabled the children to engage with the site, develop their creativity and encourage learning in a fun and creative environment.

The project finished last year in 2011 and it is exciting to see how it has developed.
