Dance First, Think Later

House of Ferment

House of Ferment in action!

Special Event

Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September 2016

Join us for a weekend of talks, demonstrations and tastings - and get involved by donating your own fruit and veg!

The House of Ferment is a live, pop-up larder by Grizedale Arts in collaboration with artist and food enthusiast Karen Guthrie

The spectacular, copper clad unit includes functional art by invited artists Laure Prouvost, Ryan Gander and Bedwyr Williams, as well as heirloom kitchen equipment and countless home-made preserves to try. The House of Ferment seeks contributions from local home cooks wherever it travels, and hosts food activists, innovators and other specialists from the food, health and environmental fields as well as dinners, talks and food events.  It uses Karen’s longstanding collection of fermented food cultures as an impetus for creative exchange, dialogue and learning.

House of Ferment is part of the Dance First, Think Later contemporary art programme at the Harris and is showing to coincide with Lancashire Encounter 2016.
