We are delighted to announce that our summer mini commission has been awarded to Bedford-based Kezia Merrick and Ground Floor Coffee, whose project will celebrate the heritage of Bedford by creating the town’s largest afternoon tea.

Through a series of workshops and collaborative activities they plan to create Bedford’s largest cake, the centre piece of ‘tea and a walk in a (small) field’, an event inspired by the inventor of afternoon tea, the Duchess of Bedford.

Check our website for details of this project as it develops in the new year.

The image above is from our winter mini commission, Kristian Purcell’s Shop Studio, which took place in Bedford’s town centre earlier this year.

The next mini commissions deadline is 15th February 2013.
