HELLO Cuerden


I'm Olivia Keith, an artist, and I'm also studying for an MA at the university in Preston.

Jelly has a long and fascinating story.  Used for preservation and celebration, jelly is now the inspiration for my work at Cuerden.

I will be working on the project during the next few months and everyone at Cuerden is invited to be involved in some way. . . . sharing memories, experimenting with materials, watching processes and celebrating outcomes!

If you see me around please do introduce yourself - I'd be glad to meet you.  You are also welcome to email me your thoughts.

Thank you.
