The Bread Work was made during the 1995 Summer Playscheme "Home Is Where The Art Is".
Young people were invited to research, bake, taste, eat, varnish and display breads from around the world. Bread Work used a box with 80 spaces - similar to the one created for "My Room" - as a way of displaying the breads The workshop was led by sculptor Ronnie Lai Tak.
Above photo of the completed box and below photos of the various breads.
It would have been good to show the photos in the same order as the breads appeared in the box - however at some point the breads were re-arranged so there are in fact two versions of the display and this is therefore almost impossible.
Feedback : "Its beautiful - so many different shades of brown." Julius Foo visiting drama worker from Singapore.
"Feedback - My son made one of the breads in this box" Irene Cole, support worker for a group of visiting students with special needs.

Feed back "When John Lennon took time off from music to be a full-time father he discovered that baking a loaf of bread was like making a work of art - I hope he'd have liked the box" Ronnie Lai Tak - sculptor and leader of the work shops which produced the box.
