9th August: open workshop at Gainsborough Learning Centre
Would you like to learn about and find edible plants, fruits and berries, and transform them into jams, jellies and chutneys? Join us for a foraging walk around West Ham, followed by a jam making workshop at the Gainsborough Learning Centre kitchen.
Led by artist Clare Qualmann the walk will begin on the Greenway by Stratford High Street, going through Memorial Recreation Ground to the Gainsborough Road kitchen where we will transform our elderberries, sloes, blackberries, medlars and apples, plus other findings into jams, jellies and chutneys.
The walk and workshop take place on Wednesday 9th August 2017, from 9.45am – 5pm. Places are free, but booking is essential as space is limited. The preserves that we make will feature in the East End Jamboree – a celebration of London jam, on Sunday 24th September 2017 at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, as part of the Harvest Stomp event. Participants can take home a jar of their jam on the day too.
