Fermentations: Remembering Cucumbers
In 2000, Japanese artist Shimabuku embarked on a two week canal boat journey from London to Birmingham — the duration of which was used to pickle cucumbers. In a nod toward this, join artist Kirsty Clarke for a two-part pickling and fermenting workshop. Learn the art of using ‘controlled decay’ to transform foods and taste the rich, complex results as we cruise past the remnants of Birmingham’s industrial past, citing fermentation as a political act against mass production and consumerism. This event takes place on Slow Boat meeting at Ikon.
Please note that this event takes place over two dates:
Workshop: Sunday 14 April, 2—4pm
Producers Lunch: Sunday 12 May, 1—3pm
£20 for both events,booking essential: ow.ly/xp8p30nEOYH
