Since Sliced Bread

A visual arts project celebrating and exploring the culture and history of our windmills.

Our opening weekend at Heckington Mill was a joy and not just because of the cakes that emerged at Fay’s baking demo!  Lots of people visited and had a go at the creative activities including Doh!  Salt Dough creations as well as Bill and Ben the Flour Pots and Whispering on the Wind sail designs.  It was a great way to start to get to know the local community as well as hear the sayings people use or value.  Some visitors even invented their own proverbs/words of wisdom.

Thanks to all the volunteers at the Mill and especially to Finn for his support with the activities.

“The kids were completely enthralled……lovely to see the children’s imaginations at work……the dough activities upstairs were fabulous…..It was a very nice relaxed and easy-going environment for the kids to get stuck in and enjoy themselves……I would definitely look out for other events at the mill especially involving creative activities “.

As a conceptually and philosophically driven visual artist, I work with different media including text, flour, installation, film and print. My work can be playful in the way that it explores the everyday relationships between language and thought. I try to make sense of how language and text can form our belief systems, change perspectives, cover up or displace reality or reveal the truth.
