Our winter 2012 mini commission was won by Kezia Ruth and Ground Floor Coffee. Inspired by the Duchess of Bedford, inventor of afternoon tea, Kezia created Bedford’s largest cake, the centre piece of a ‘tea and a walk in a (small) field’ event at our February 2013 Almanac Festival.

A mail art project and cake icing workshops provided the inspiration for the cake, and the cake itself was constructed from donations from local professional and amateur bakers.

The afternoon tea also included a small participatory walk, with clues to find and things to do, in the grounds of Kings House in Bedford, who hosted the event.

Mini commissions are open to professional and amateur artists, curators and producers living in the five counties area around Bedford area who have a good idea that aligns with our artistic policy.
