Clay Cutlery Making Workshop with India Hamilton
“And for a knife, we will use the great sword”
The BFG, Roald Dahl
Clay Cutlery Making Workshop
For children aged 4-11
India Hamilton explores the social and health benefits of eating with your hands vs. eating with cutlery. After working as a chef in India, where she noted that children were more adventurous with what they ate, she built a restaurant called Eat with your hands in 2017.
Cutlery has been shown to impact the taste and quantity of what you eat and is specially designed for children with safety in mind. For most children it takes two to four years to master. Once mastered, the way you use them has an impact on how society views you.
Children will be asked to make a knife, spoon and fork from memory that they would like to use to eat with. The cutlery will be fired, glazed and photographed as part of India’s ongoing research.
During the session we will read extracts from Roald Dahl and his beautiful and gross portrayals of food.
